Lincolnshire Wolds Railway
Wooden Bodied Grain Wagons


Three wooden bodied grain wagons stand on the trackbed at Louth in the mid 1980`s
 They were donated by the local maltsters to the Grimsby - Louth Railgroup.

Having suffered from the elements and vandalism they are finally rescued from Louth in
2000. The first one is seen here being lifted by crane at the start of the road journey to Ludborough.

The road trailer arrives at Ludborough and is positioned on the level crossing to
enable the crane to lift the wagon onto the track.

All the wooden panelling has been removed and restoration of the steel framework
is well advanced in this picture taken on 23rd December 2001.
