‘Jurassic’ returns to steam

This fine Peckett 0-6-0 locomotive ( 1008 of 1903) was the pride of the old LCLR at Humberston.

She spent her working life at a cement works in Southam, near Rugby, owned by the Rugby Portland Cement Company. She had not steamed since the mid 1980s.

Now after a period of over twenty five years the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway Historic Vehicles Trust ( LCLRHVT) having reached agreement with the LCLR Company, and with the help of an HLF grant for restoration costs, has almost completed it`s restoration. 

10th June 2017 - Steam Test Passed!

The boiler inspector visited the LCLR today to view "Jurassic" in steam.

GREAT NEWS! The steam test was passed without problem and we now have our 10 year boiler certificate. Work continues to refit the cab, saddle tank, boiler cladding and of course a full paint job. If all goes well we hope to see Jurassic on steam hauled trains at the LCLR this summer!

Keep checking website for details!

Jurassic moves back to the shed under her own steam.

The team pose for a photo next to Jurassic at South Loop.

This has been a wonderful achievement for our small band of volunteers, with thanks to the North Norfolk Railway for their boiler work.

Jurassics` first fire at Skegness.

Jurassic makes her first movements coupled to one of our Simplex diesels on her first steaming which highlighted one or two minor problems, now successfully fixed.
