We are the only standard gauge steam railway in Lincolnshire open to the public.
The railway line at Ludborough originally opened in 1848 and was part of the Great Northern Grimsby to Boston route.
Up until 1970, trains would frequently pass through to many destinations, including London and the Midlands.
After the withdrawal of passenger services, the section between Grimsby and Louth was kept open for freight trains for a further ten years.
Following closure, all the track and ballast was taken up, most of the station buildings were demolished and the line abandoned. However this was not the end. In 1980 a preservation society was formed with the aim of restoring the line and a dedicated group of volunteers set about bringing the railway back to life.
The station, platforms and signal box at Ludborough have been rebuilt, the track has been relayed and steam trains now travel to North Thoresby.
At Ludborough there is a museum which has a fine collection of railwayana to remind you of days gone by.
