Formerly in railway ownership...

There are also lots of former railway buildings in Lincolnshire, that although now privately owned and not open to the public, have been restored to 'railway condition'. Here are just a few locations (Details checked 6th November 2012); Sutton-on-Sea


The postcard above, posted in 1918, shows three properties in Sutton-on-Sea which are constructed from six former railway carriage bodies. Earlier photos show that four of them were being used as camping coaches on site before being converted into bungalows and a house. In 2012 the house was badly damaged by fire and its future may be in doubt.

Alford Sutton Tramway
The Alford & Sutton tramway operated from 1884 to 1889. Its offices were at Argyle House in Alford. This is thought to be the last remaining relic of the steam tramway and is now a private residence.
