Synopsis

East Lincolnshire’s Lost Railways by Alan Stennett. Dr Beeching’s report recommended the closure of many of routes in Lincolnshire, and the part of the county to the south and east of Lincoln was particularly hard hit.

The routes most affected were the Lincolnshire Loop Line and the East Lincolnshire Railway. Large parts of both closed on 5th October 1970. These are the lines that are covered in this title, along with the many branch lines served by them. The book features 150 photographs.
