The Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway has sent RailAdvent five never seen before photos of their railway, taken between 1967 and 1972, that have been found on the Isle of Man.
2021 has been the LCLR’s busiest operating season since it reopened in 2009 and on the last day of the season, a passenger showed staff five photos that he had found in a second-hand shop on the Isle of Man.
None of the on-duty staff had ever seen the photos before, although a couple of currently-active volunteers are identifiable.
The photos show scenes at both sites which the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway used.
The images show:
- A 1920 Motor Rail Simplex Loco, works number 1935, with the two ex-Ashover Light Railway carriages at South Sea Lane terminus of the Humberstone site.
- A rear-facing view of the two Ashover carriages that appear to be taken at South Sea Line – with a possibility of this being a test train to see if the 1920s loco could handle the heavy load.
- Steam locomotive Jurassic raising steam at the second North Sea Lane depot, pay particular attention to the Ex-War Department P Wagon.
- Locomotive No. 1 with a Ex-WDLR Pa wagon and 2 Ex-WDLR D bogie wagons at the Beach terminus.
- Jurassic moving over the junction between the yard and main line at North Sea Lane.
