THE Appleby Frodingham Railway Preservation Society (AFRPS) runs rail tours around the vast and busy rail-served complex of British Steel’s Scunthorpe steelworks on selected summer weekends.
Afternoon tours are suitable for all the family with travel in loco-hauled Class 108 DMU trailer cars. Adult-only brakevan tours are also run on some Saturdays over the winter and on summer evenings.
The AFRPS has its own collection of steam and diesel locos, loco shed and station with buffet and toiler facilities, at a site within the works.
Tickets for the tours, which take several hours, must be pre-booked – for details see website: www.afrps.co.uk
