Are you pining for the fens?

The 2008 season of music trains on the Poacher Line starts Thursday 27th February when the JET Skiffle and Blues band will be entertaining passengers on the 19:00 train from Sleaford to Wainfleet which just happens to house Batemans' famous brewery calling Heckington at 19:10, then Boston at 19:25hrs)

Batemans welcomes passengers to their Visitor Centre for a selection of beer and some hot food before despatching them on the train back towards Sleaford at 21:15. Usual fares apply.

Chris Watson, Community Rail Manager for the Poacher Line predicts great fun. "JET always put on a good show; they work their socks off and are popular with the audience"”.

More music trains are scheduled this spring. Any local artistes brave enough to volunteer their services for a gig on such trains should contact Chris Watson on 01529 309372. He'll be happy to detail similar opportunities if skiffle is not your "cup of ale!"
