Mablethorpe: the Sand Train
Mablethorpe: the Sand Train
The Sand Train has been running since 1952 and provides trips northward from the town centre (the train in the picture is at the terminus) just over a mile along the beach, ending near the Seal Sanctuary. It is a wonderful feature of this splendid little seaside resort.

The train can be used as a functional mode of transport, with tickets available for a single journey all the way, or to any of four intermediate stops; or a pleasure trip up the beach and back without disembarking. It's a bargain at 2 for the round trip, and is good fun for children, including 43-year-old ones like me!

It is a nice bonus touch that the train actually veers into the sea just before arriving back here: TF5085 : Mablethorpe: the Sand Train becomes a Sea Train!
