Pop into Brigg Tourist Information Centre, in the Buttercross, pictured above, to book a place on one of the nostalgic FREE tours taking place on Saturdays from now until early autumn.
There is no charge for tickets but donations are welcomed by the Appleby-Frodingham Railway Preservation Society, which offers afternoon train rides around many miles of track on Scunthorpe steelworks.
Brigg Blog speaks from personal experience when we say these train trips criss-crossing the British Steel plant are very enjoyable and informative, including a ride past the landmark Four Queens blastfurnaces, the rolling mills, coke ovens and the BOS steelmaking plant.
The tours, lasting about two-and-a-half hours, are generally hauled by a vintage steam locomotive.
Call at Brigg TIC now and put your name down for the Saturday of your choice between June 2 and September 29.
Trains depart at 1.30pm from a small station, Frodingham, adjoining Brigg Road, Scunthorpe, close to the main steelworks office block at DN16 1XA.
Car parking is available nearby. Or take the Hornsby No 4 service from Brigg - Scunthorpe bus station is not very far from the steelworks station.
Please note: You must book in advance at the Buttercross for these tours; you CANNOT pay at the station or on the train.

Perhaps more suited to railway enthusiasts are brake van tours which also operate on selected days. If they appeal, ask for details when you call at the Buttercross.

Cranford, an 0-6-0 saddle tank, built in 1924. She once worked for the Staveley Coal and Iron Company in Derbyshire, then at quarries. The loco is pictured last year at the steelworks railway station, having hauled a brake van tour that Brigg Blog found fascinating. We had just put a tenner in the donations box; well worth the money for an afternoon's entertainment. Brigg Road, Scunthorpe, can be seen on the right of the picture.
