Mablethorpe: the Sand Train becomes a Sea Train!
Mablethorpe: the Sand Train becomes a Sea Train!
We look across the beach from the prom above the terminus of TF5085 : Mablethorpe: the Sand Train as the returning train's arrival is imminent.

The train runs for just over a mile northward along the beach and can be used as a functional form of transport to one of several stops along the way, or is equally commonly used as a non-disembarking pleasure trip.

It is a nice quirky touch that the driver takes the train into the water for a few hundred yards just before returning to the terminus here in the town centre. Some pictures from the train while at sea are here:
