Boston Station, with train
Boston Station, with train
View northward, towards Firsby and Grimsby, also Lincoln. The photograph shows Boston station on a Summer Saturday in its days of decline. At the Up main platform is a filthy Class B1 4-6-0 on a Mablethorpe - Derby express. This would have come by the Mablethorpe Loop off the ex-GNR East Lincolnshire main line, which itself was closed on 5/10/70 all the way from Grimsby down to Firsby South Junction and from Boston to Spalding; the line from Lincoln via Woodhall Junction had already been closed on 17/6/63. Ever since, Boston has been a small station on the surviving line from Nottingham and Grantham to Skegness.
