Exciting update from Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway!
Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway has announced that it has now reopened for the season!
The attraction has been rated the number one tourist attraction in North East Lincolnshire on Trip Advisor for five consecutive years.
The two-mile service is one of the oldest miniature railways in the country and has been running for over 70 years now!
Trains will run every half hour, seven days a week between 10:30am and 4:00pm.
Last month No.24, one of the most popular locomotives, was taken to John Fowler Engineering in the Lake District for a full-scale renovation.
The train is expected to return in Spring 2023.
One lucky spectator caught the locomotive’s departure on camera – watch it being removed from the line here:
