The Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway is a 2 ft (610 mm) narrow gauge heritage railway built in 1958 using equipment from the Nocton Potato Estate railway. It was originally located at Humberston, near Cleethorpes, and operated until 1985. The equipment was removed form storage and used to create a new railway at Skegness which opened in 3rd May 2009.[1]

1961 Bought the locomotive 'Jurassic' originally built by Peckett and Sons for the quarries and cement works of Kaye and Co to help operate their services linking the bus terminus at Humberston, near Cleethorpes, with the local beach and holiday camp.

2017 (Sept) Jurassic, the 114-year-old steam locomotive on the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway, returned to service and operated her first public passenger trains during the Classic Wheels classic car and vehicle show in the Skegness Water Leisure Park. This is the first time she has hauled trains, thanks to work financed by the Heritage Lottery Fund carried out by volunteers from the Charitable Trust which owns her and their contractors. **See photos (Sept 2017).
