View eastward, towards Spalding on the ex-GN&GE March - Spalding - Sleaford - Lincoln - Doncaster main line, also ex-GN Lincoln - Boston line. The complex Tour took us from Liverpool Street to Norwich, then Cromer and over the M&GN via Melton Constable and South Lynn to Spalding, then via Sleaford and Grantham back to King's Cross. A1 4-6-2 No. 60136 'Alcazar' (built 11/48, withdrawn 5/63) took over here for the last leg via Grantham to London.
