On Tuesday 26th March 2013 BBC Radio Lincolnshires "Melvyn in the Morning" programme was broadcast live from
the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Beeching axe.
At 11.15 Melvyn Prior sounds the whistle and signals a special train away to North Thoresby.
On board he interviews Frank Street, MD of the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway.
At North Thoresby Melvyn is about to interview train driver Geoff Garland, who drove trains on the
Grimsby to Peterborough line in British Railways days.
With the driver back on the loco Gordon Newton of the LWR shows Melvyn where the old route to Grimsby is
still plainly visible across the level crossing, and talks about possible extensions of the line.
Now its the turn of Maurice Lynn to tell Melvyn about his LWR work on the permanent way.
It`s now about 11.45 and with the programme about to finish the BBC team are about to signal the train away back to Ludborough.
