Sunday ride out; Lincolnshire Wolds Railway...

Postby DirtyA » Tue Jun 02, 2009 10:24 pm

I posted this on the other forum, but I guess I'm not part of the in group, as it got little or no interest there...

Some pictures as a result of a sunday trip out with the family, we passed by the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway at Ludborough...

Looking south from what I presume was the up platform:

On the down platform looking back towards the ticket office:

Ticket office/museum:

Ruston(?) 0-4-0 shunter, Tidy:
Image

Scruffy Sentinal looking like an extra from Thunderbirds:
Image

Hunslow Yardmaster:
Image

Can anyone shed any light on the meaning of this?
Image

Looking North, Lincoln City Council's 08 on loan here and working hard:
Image

Where are we? Oh Yeah:
Image

Looking towards the engine shed:
Image

Must.Obey.Sign.
Image

Hooje dirty engine in a wagon, some sort of generator?
Image

Another Ruston or Fowler shunter (not sure which) looking like its had it's day in the sun:
Image

Close up to the engine shed:

Hunting shunters...
Image

...they are everywhere!
Image

Close up of the Yardmaster, Novartis Grimsby?
Image

Between the buffet car and the rolling stock, a look back to the engine shed:
Image

Looking down the down platform:
Image

When I grow up, I want a garden big enough to own one of these:
Image

Ludborough signalbox, newer that it would appear, rebuilt 1993 I believe.
Image

Back end of the 08 through the heat haze:
Image

A look at the now redundant up platform:

Something a little different, hope you liked the pictures.

Hi, i went there last July when i was on holiday in Lincolnshire, but i wasn't very impressed with it, but at least they had steam running. It was an ex NCB 0-6-0 Saddle Tank borrowed from the Bowes Railway, as both their steam loco's were under repair.

Excellent pictures, thanks for posting 8)

Only merry-go-round trains I know of are the coal trains supplying the power stations :wink:

I was there last monday, due to problems we couldn't go all the way to the other station so we we went up and down the line a few times!

Thunderbird: due to the shortness of the line itself it kinda makes sense that they only have shunters, a pacific would be far too expensive and un-economical (might also require the rails re-laying due to its weight), though prehaps a larger tank engine or something wouldn't go unmissed!

You are right though they do have quite an obsession with shunters! :D

When I went it was really hot, perfect weather but I thought the line was slightly dissapointing (being on the door step to the North York Moors Railway does that)

they did have 3 steam engines under sheets in the shed - I really wanted to go and have a look under the sheets
