Mablethorpe Miniature Railway

15th April 2017

I`ve been meaning to photograph the 7.25 inch Mablethorpe Miniature Railway for some time, but never seemed to have a camera with me, until today!

The railway is on a well maintained site with a circular track running around a putting green, situated near the boating lake at Queens Park.

It was proving very popular today and at £1 a ticket (two trips round the circuit) it`s good value.

The tunnel provides secure storage for the stock when the railway is closed.

The freelance loco No7 "Lewis" is powered by a petrol engine and is of 4-4wPM wheel arrangement.

Returning to the station on the seaward side - the promenade is just at the top of the steps - and it`s my favourite beach in Lincolnshire!
