Mayor of Skegness & Jolly Fisherman wave green flag to start 10th anniversary gala

The gala, on 13th July 2019, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the LCLRs opening in the Skegness Water Leisure Park was opened by two very special guests: The Mayor of Skegness Cllr. Mark Dannatt and Skegness favourite The Jolly Fisherman.

The Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway (LCLR) is a 60 cm narrow gauge heritage railway, approximately 0.75 miles long, situated in Ingoldmells at the award winning Skegness Water Leisure Park on the beautiful Lincolnshire Coast. On our summer operating days you can ride in one of our historic railway carriages, pulled by one of our historic diesel locomotives, or on certain days by our Peckett steam locomotive "Jurassic". The diesel locos are based on designs for WW1 trench railways, which later powered transport for agriculture and industry throughout Lincolnshire and the wider world. Our steam locomotive "Jurassic" was built in 1903 and spent her working life at a cement works in Southam, near Rugby. Following restoration at the LCLR she returned to steam in mid 2017.

Our collection of historic WW1 trench railway vehicles are demonstrated on gala days, and can normally be viewed on operating days. More details of the collection on the LCLR Historic Vehicles Trust page.

LCLRHVT nominated for HRA award!

The LCLR Historic vehicles Trust was nominated for the award, a great recognition from the UK wide railway preservation movement, of the efforts made by Trust members and all volunteers to get Jurassic running in the Park again. We were runners up on the night - well done to all involved!
