Members of the Fenwold League of Splendid Steampunks (FLOSS) and their families held a ‘Full Steam Ahead’ event at Evergreens Miniature Railway in Spilsby on Saturday May 28, attending in all their steampunk finery, and enjoyed steampunk gadget displays, teddy bears picnics and rides on the miniature railway.

Founder of the group, Captain Nathaniel Tennyson Skirmish, said: “The event at Evergreens went well, considering we were up against the Carrington Steam Rally.”
