Steam along for family fun at railway

TAKE the family to the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway at Ludborough Station for a ride on a real steam train this bank holiday weekend.

The railway is open every Wednesday and Sunday during August and Bank Holiday Monday. The station shop, museum, and buffet will also be open.

The first train leaves Ludborough at 10.45am, and then there is an hourly service until 3.45pm.

l The Lincolnshire Wolds Railway is now offering the chance for people to ride on the footplate of one of its locomotives.

During the Footplate Experience the driver will explain the controls of the engine to you on the journey along the line from Ludborough to North Thoresby and back and you will gain first hand experience of what it was like in the good old days of steam.

After your journey you are presented with a certificate as a memento of your experience.

The experience costs £25 and is available for adults only and by prior arrangement.
