A photograph of Waltham station on the East Lincolnshire line looking northwards towards Grimsby.
These photos were taken just after the line was closed in 1970. It was then reduced to a single track
to maintain a freight service to the ABM maltkiln at Louth.

A nice shot from the photographers bedroom window in the station house looking southwards towards Louth.
The Nissen hut in the yard was known as the Bibby Shed since it stored and distributed Bibby Cattle Food.

The gangers hut by the crossover at Waltham station. Interestingly 3 of the pylons of Waltham naval
radio station can be seen above the hut and bungalow.
The pylons were always a landmark to me when travelling by train - has anyone got a picture of the radio masts or any info on them?
