Crowle Peatland Railway


Crowle Peatland Railway was formed to preserve the history and heritage of peat extraction in the Humberhead Peatlands – in particular, the story of the peatland railways.

Our base is at the Old Peat Works on Crowle Moors where we have built a new maintenance shed and from which we have started laying track so that we will be able to run trains.

The society has three locomotives;

Two diesel hydraulic Schöma locomotives originally delivered to the moors in 1990. Specially designed for peat working the locomotives have driven slave units. The locomotives are being renovated by society members.
A Simplex Locomotive first used on the moors in the 1980s and left abandoned on the moors for over 20 years. It is now being restored at North Lindsey College. 

We are now running regular work parties on a Saturday morning.
