Archive LCLR photos found at Cleethorpes Coast Lt. Railway during lockdown tidy up.

Our friends at the award winning 15 inch Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway (CCLR) were tidying up their office when some old photos of the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway (LCLR) when it used to be at Humberston near Cleethorpes were found. CCLR director Peter Bryant kindly forwarded these photos, from nearly 60 years ago, to us at Skegness. The photos were taken in 1962, by a photographer called C.W. Underhill from Belper in Derbyshire, of the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway on its original site at Humberston. The LCLRs Beach station at that time was very close to where the Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway (CCLR) hopes to extend their current 2 mile line to in the future.
