The Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway was a 2 foot gauge line , about a mile long and ran from the terminus at Humberston North sea lane to Humberston South sea lane [Fitties camp] from 1960 until sadly closed in 1985 . In the 70's , we had most of our family holidays at Humberstone Fitties camp and on our first holiday there , whilst everyone was unloading the car, i went to explore the area around the rows of caravans About 20yards from our caravan, i found what i now know as a former W.D. bogie van painted bright red , which was used by the L.C.L.R. as a mobile ticket office and small shop. I raced back the short distance to the caravan and asked my mam for 3 pence, the single child fare being 1 1/2 pence ! This proved to be the first of many happy rides over the years on this sadly missed railway. During the years that we holidayed in Humberstone , the line had 2 steam locos , "Elin" a 040 st ,that was sadly too heavy for the light rails in use and "Jurassic" a Peckett 060st , which hauled most if not all of the steam hauled services. The diesal fleet consisted of .5 Motor rail 4wdm's , Wilton, Nocton , Paul, and Major , the 5th not carrying a name. Passenger stock was 2 former Ashover light railway coaches , the former Sand Hutton light railways only coach and a former W.D. open bogie wagon fitted with seats. The main station had a chocolate machine which sold Nestles Thomas the tank engine bars, which had wrappers with a cut out illustration from one of the Thomas books , this being many years before the boom in Thomas items. I spent many happy hours on and around the L.C.L.R. ,and it was always a friendly place to be, I would help out at times, cleaning "Jurassic" after she had worked the weekend trains. Sadly in 1985 the local council insisted on a number of almost immpossible requirements and the railway was forced to close. Most of the stock was moved to storage at Burgh le Marsh, and remained there for a number of years It is now  around 30 years since my last visit to the railway, but the story does have a happy ending as on the 3rd May 2009 , the L.C.L.R. reopened along the coast at Skegness water leisure park at Walls lane Skegness.
