Set in rural Lincolnshire, a few miles north of Sleaford, the North Ings Farm Museum narrow gauge railway was built in 1972 to serve a poultry farm, taking feed to the sheds and removing waste. It continued daily operation until 1982, when the poultry business closed. Following annual open days, the museum started opening on a regular basis in 1990, and is now home to vintage tractors, barn engines, and agricultural equipment in addition to the railway.

The railway still retains its agricultural feel, with a steam tram locomotive and eight former industrial diesel locomotives used to haul passenger trains on a 1/3 mile circuit around the museum grounds. The passenger coaches are converted from skip wagons, and there are other examples of freight wagons on site.
