Music returns to county's tracks
Music trains, where gigs are held in carriages, are returning to Lincolnshire for a second season.

The Poacher Line music trains run between Grantham and Skegness and will begin again on Thursday in Sleaford.

Rail managers came up with the idea of gigs on trains to bolster passenger numbers and to give county musicians a chance to play in an unusual venue.

Community rail manager Chris Watson said there would be entertainment to suit all music tastes.

"We've got a skiffle band starting it off again, we've got the Salvation Army band, brass band on a train for Christmas," he said.

"But then we've got a poetry night and we've got some theatre groups coming on. Anything really, it's featuring local acts and we'll give anybody a stage."
