Mablethorpe Miniature Railway 7 ¼ inch

The Mablethorpe Miniature Railway (formally known as Queens Park MR) first opened in 1968 as a 10 inch gauge railway but was regauged to the present gauge in 1970. The railway is basically a simple circuit in the public park behind the sea wall, running through the tunnel/shed as it goes. A train ride consists of two circuits round the track. There are two petrol engines currently based here. The locomotive built in 1976 used to be a steam outline engine though this body has been replaced with a 'Chitty-chitty-bang-bang' body. The other petrol locomotive has been rebuilt from a diesel-outline loco into 'Lewis' (still on the 4-4wPM chassis with a new engine and new body) pulling two multi-coloured open coaches. The tunnel/shed and ticket office were rebuilt at a similar time to the locomotives.
