Welcome To Our Railway

Now Recruiting Volunteers in all Areas

We would like to run our trains more often but we need more volunteers to help our small friendly team with Track Maintenance, Loco & Carriage Maintenance, Guards, Station & Booking Staff, Drivers & Firemen. Get in touch via the contact tab on this page. We work most Wednesdays and some Saturdays all year round - come and meet us!

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!

Extension to LCLR now complete!

The south extension to the running line was officially completed today following the addition of a non-slip surface to the staff only platform and drivers stopping indicators. The plan for the future is to build a full length station platform here at South Loop.

Ready for 2018 - "Jurassic`s" test run to new South Loop

5th May 2018

Jurassic ​had its first steaming of 2018 on 5th May. All went well and a test run through the new pointwork on the new South Loop extension was also successful.

"Jurassic" is launched at annual "Classic Wheels" show

Sunday 17th Sept 2017

Our steam locomotive "Jurassic" was launched on scheduled passenger duties at the annual Skegness Water Leisure Park "Classic Wheels" car show. A record number of passengers were carried on the day. "Jurassic" will be in regular use for our 2018 season - check website for dates.

"Jurassic" returns to steam!

Wed 2nd Aug 2017. Our 0-6-0 Peckett loco had a very successful steam test on Wednesday 2nd August 2017 (pictured below leaving South Loop). It still requires work on its air braking system, hence the diesel loco at rear of this test train providing air for the brakes. To keep in touch with "Jurassics" progress check this website where we will announce its return to regular service! Until such time trains will be diesel hauled.

"Jurassic" receives its lining.
