Railways in Northern Lincolnshire: Four Decades of Change (Key)

Back Order

Set against the contrasting rural and industrial scenery of northern Lincolnshire, this book illustrates the area’s fascinating passenger and freight trains, railway infrastructure, stations and signalling over a 40-year period.

Moving from west to east through the area, it shows many of the locations on the railway and the variety of locomotives and multiple units that have appeared in the area from 1979 to the present day. Taking the reader on a fascinating journey, this book contains over 180 photographs, each accompanied by an extensive caption.

Together they form a comprehensive historical record of the trains in northern Lincolnshire, including many of the changes that have taken place in the railways of the area. They illustrate how passenger and freight services have grown or declined and how the infrastructure of the railways has evolved through a period of 40 years to meet the needs of the modern railway era.

An introduction to railways in the area is included, followed by three chapters of images:

  • The Scunthorpe Area
  • Around Barnetby
  • Barton, Immingham, Grimsby and Cleethorpes

96 pages.
