Cleethorpes to Scarborough Experience

The Humber region will be one of the beneficiaries of Department for Transport Rail Tourism funding:

Community Rail Humber Ltd: the Cleethorpes to Scarborough experience - £31,700. The project will create a heritage and tourism trail that starts from Cleethorpes in north-east Lincolnshire and stretches all the way to Scarborough in North Yorkshire.

Further details of the 'experience' are awaited. I presume it will be at least in part a marketing campaign for existing tourist venues along the routes of the Cleethorpes-Grimsby-Barton line and Hull-Beverley-Driffield-Bridlington-Filey-Scarborough route.

Community Rail Humber "provides help, advice and support to the two community rail partnerships in the region" - the Yorkshire Coast Community Rail Partnership and the Barton Cleethorpes Community Rail Partnership.

This sounds interesting.
A shame Alliance Rail's plan was rejected though.
