If you know someone who is interested in Lincolnshire’s railway history then your local heritage line has the perfect Christmas stocking filler.
In the early part of the 20th century the eastern part of our county had a comprehensive railway system and there were very few communities more than a few miles from the nearest train station. Sadly, virtually all these lines have now disappeared from the railway map.
The long-lost lines to places like Mablethorpe, Horncastle, Spilsby and Bardney are just a few of the routes covered in an interesting series of budget-priced books published by the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway Society that recapture the memories of times past.
You can see a full list of the books available and order online in time for Christmas here.
Our picture above shows an idyllic scene from one of the books at East Barkwith station on the Louth to Bardney line.
