We’d decided to have a look at the Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway, on our way home from a trip to York. Couldn’t find a timetable on their website, and no indication of anything special in the offing. Got there and found they were having a Sutton Miniature Railway event – “Sutton 45” to mark the closure of the line 45 years ago – with original locos, original stock, and original drivers too! Yes, really!
This was our first visit to this recently extended line – and a most enjoyable visit it was too, with exceptionally friendly staff (and exceptionally grip-happy ticket inspectors…). More photos and more detail will follow, in due course, on “Geoff’s Rail Diaries”.
Time for lunch – we’re at the seaside, so… The fish and chips, eaten whilst sitting on the promenade wall watching the shipping in the Humber, were excellent. There will definitely be a return trip.
