The railway attraction gives visitors the chance to experience these vehicles first-hand.The ‘Light’ Railway operates on a 2-foot narrow-gauge track, which is smaller than most standard railways. The railway was constructed back in the 1960s by a group of railway enthusiasts who aimed to preserve the heritage of the Lincolnshire Potato Railways, which were used throughout much of the 1900s to transport potato crops from the fields to the next stage of their onward rural journey. The narrow tracks and short distance of the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway are indicative of those original potato railways, all of which are now retired.Dogs are welcome at the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway.
