An early cabinet card of Ancaster station c1900, taken by A.ARNELL photographer of Scarborough.
A later view from other direction of Ancaster on the Sleaford to Grantham Line.
This line and station are still open though it is now unstaffed and dramaticlly "rationalised".
Tallington on the GNR east coast mainline just north of Werrington Junction.
Brigg station on the GCR Retford to Wrawby Jcn & Grimsby line. A beautiful shot showing
a busy thriving station. Although Brigg is still open, on Saturdays only (!), the overall roof
and station ambience have long gone.
A busy day at Gainsborough Central in early 1900`s. Contrast this with the
pictures of the station elsewhere on this site!
A similar style station existed at Market Rasen on the GCR Lincoln to Wrawby Jcn line.
The station is still open to Central Trains services but is without roof, and is in run-down condition.
Donington Road station on the GN & GE Joint line between Sleaford and Spalding.
Long closed Sibsey station just north of Boston on the East Lincolnshire line. Signalbox is still open
at end of singled Boston to Sibsey section which remains double track to Skegness.
Ludborough on the GNR`s East Lincolnshire Line. Notice the original low platform in front of
station building. This was replaced by the ELR`s characteristic staggered platforms.
Not far from Skegness is Wainfleet station, seen here in the 1880`s.
Originally the terminus of the line from Firsby, the extension to Skegness was opened in 1873.
Theddlethorpe station on Louth to Mablethorpe branch with a fine GNR loco arriving.

Woodhall Spa station on the Horncastle branch line - pictured in late 1950s?
The miniature railway at Skegness, which opened in early 1920`s, seen on a reproduction postcard
- should anyone have an original postcard of this scene for sale I would like to hear from you!
