Pre-Beeching : A Lincolnshire experience

I once had a dream that I rode on a train
From Mareham-le-Fen up to Kirkby on Bain,
Then Tumby and Coningsby, not very far,
To Tattershall, Kirkstead and then Woodhall Spa.
As Martin and Timberland slowly went by
The train chuffed contentedly, happy was I.

But, all of a sudden, it gathered up steam
And seemed to go mad as it ruined my dream.
From Braceby and Laceby to Wood Enderby,
Then Humby and Mumby and Sutton-on-Sea.
From Aby to Swaby and straight up to Louth,
Next Old Leake and New Leake and Kime [North and South].
And so the train rushed through the Lincolnshire names,
Goodbye Market Deeping and Deeping St James.
Hello Potterhanworth and Thornton-le-Moor
And Tattershall Thorpe - have we been here before?
Oh look, there's Old Bolingbroke, can we alight?
No, Holton-cum-Beckering's there on the right.
Grimsthorpe and Cowbit and Gedney Drove end,
The train lurched past Markby and stalled on a bend.

And I tumbled out as the train steamed and hissed,
And with a faint sigh just dissolved in the mist.
