Nottingham to Skegness

Skegness is a classic seaside town on the east coast of Lincolnshire. Ever since the railway arrived in 1873 the town has been a popular holiday destination.

Today’s train service is a far cry from the line’s heyday when six platforms were in use at the terminus. Just one train an hour plies the route from Nottingham these days.

Filmed in the cab of a 3 car class 156/153 Sprinter combination, our limited stop train calls at Grantham for connection with the East Coast Main Line. Here the train reverses and continues via Sleaford and Boston.

Most of the route is still block worked with semaphore signals controlled by manual signal boxes overseeing traditional wooden level crossing gates.

The history of the line is fascinating and former Yorkshire ITV news anchor Alan Hardwick narrates.
