TATA Rail/Van Tour Schedule


The Appleby Frodingham Railway Preservation Society will be running rail tours around the Scunthorpe site over the summer  months – see the attached timetable for dates and times.

Standard railtours are two and a half hours long and use railway coaches to take visitors around 15 miles of the site’s internal rail system . A live commentary is given on these tours explaining the iron and steelmaking process. We then call in at the Society’s loco shed , where light refreshments are avalible, and there is an opportunity view our workshops.

Brake Van Tours are about one and a half hours in duration and  passengers are carried in one of three brake vans with open verandas. These tours visit parts of the site that we do not normally visit on standard rail tours. These tours do not call at our loco sheds. There are no toilets available on the train and due to the open verandas are not suitable for children under 12.

Evening rail tours are about one hour long and cover about seven miles of the site’s internal rail system . They are suitable for all ages and use our standard passenger coaches. These tours do not visit the loco sheds.

All places on these railtours must be pre-booked.  Bookings can be made via Brigg Tourist Information  on 01652 658053 or e-mail

Although no charge is made for the railtours , a collection will be made at the end of the tour to cover operating and maintenance costs.

The  Appleby Frodingham Railway Preservation Society  uses  contributions from these collections to enable us to maintain our locos/ rolling stock and to continue to operate these rail tours.

This Wednesday- Scunthorpe LGBT Launches Social Meet Up

Scunthorpe Independent News


After a couple of months being back online Scunthorpe LGBT network has received numerous messages and emails either requesting support or an event. It has become more and more visible that homophobia locally sadly is still alive for some of the community.

We are creating a social meet up which will allow ages 14+. This may put some of the people over 18 off but we do not expect everyone to sit together if they do not wish to. Certain age groups will be split off onto which ever tables they wish.

The first meet up everyone will be asked their opinion of what they would like to see more of whether it be have trips out, film showings or a night time club/gig event.

So why not come hang out for a non alcoholic drink and a chat.

Our very own meet-up!

Scunthorpe & N Lincs LGBTQ

Note that this article contains words that some readers may find to show us to be stereotyping

On facebook, a new event which literally took facebook famous people by storm are ‘meet-ups’ where a huge group of facebookers meet. Usually, they all end up with Police being called and with eggs and flour being thrown at someone.

Approximately 1-in-3 young people are gay, lesbian or bi-sexual and half of the time, we don’t even know about it! There are so many reasons why young people would want to keep their sexuality quiet.

Inspired by the meet-ups hosted on facebook, some members of Scunthorpe LGBT are thinking of planning one but before we host one, we want to find out what you would think if we did host one.

We are inviting you and your friends to come along and meet new people, no matter what sexuality. We would like anybody…
