Branch Lines North of Grimsby
by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith
The main purpose of the branch has changed over the years from serving the Hull ferry to providing the link to Britain’s busiest freight dockland.
The variety of trains and sites is illustrated in detail, along with a diversity of maps and diagrams to aid orientation.
[Review on both Gainsborough to Sheffield and Branch Lines North of Grimsby:]
'Lavishly illustrated with pictures from the steam and diesel eras, these books also contain very informative maps, together with many old timetables recalling an era when trains were the main form of public transport.'
(Nostalgia - Scunthorpe Telegraph, 4th October 2018)
'A personal favourite part of this book is the section on the Grimsby & Immingham Electric Railway.... This book incidentally explains the shift in cargoes to Immingham under the GCR project and the expansion of Grimsby for fish traffic.'
(The Railway Observer, April 2018, Vol. 88, No. 1070)
'The lesser known routes are often the great attraction in these books, and this is certainly the case here, with the Barton & Immingham Light Railway section particularly fascinating, as is that of Immingham Dock, which was always rather hard for the public to see at close quarters.'
