All aboard for the 1115 Melvyn's Memory Express!

Come and see Melvyn on board "Melvyn's Memory Express" and have a free ride from Ludborough to North Thoresby, thanks to the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway.   We will be steam hauled by Peckett 0-4-0 "Fulstow" for a 45 minute return journey.   There is no charge, but donations to the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway will be gratefully received!   Melvyn will be broadcasting live throughout the journey, so come and tell him your Lincolnshire railway memories.   No need to book - just turn up at Ludborough Station from 0900 (free parking and refreshments available).   The train will leave at 1115.   *** Apologies, but due to freezing weather, the train will now be hauled by a classic diesel locomotive with "Fulstow" on display in "light steam". ***
