A converted 19th century railway station – which comes complete with a train and its own track - is for sale for £600,000 in Lincolnshire.

The former Great Northern Railway station in Rippingale was built in 1872 and closed in the 1960s.

It was bought by railway enthusiast John Scholes, 69, and his wife Sheila, 66, in 1991 after they both retired as funeral directors.

The couple have now decided to put the property on the market as they are looking to downsize and move nearer to family.

A 1924 steam locomotive on site can be included in the sale of the property, which also boasts the original railway platform.
