Published by Richard Kay in 2007, 62 pages. A5 Size Booklet (N4613P1)

Until October 1848 there were no railway services in and around the Lincolnshire town of Boston, and all goods and passengers had to be transported by road or canal. This fascinating booklet examines the arrival and development of the railway in the area, and although first published in 1971, this revised edition charts the history of the railway right up until modern times.

The booklet includes several small black and white photographs and maps, and chapters include:

  • Transport on the eve of the Railways
  • The Railway mania
  • Construction
  • Railway town
  • Lines to Grantham and Freiston Shore
  • Later developments in the area, and closures
  • Up to the anniversary (in 1998)

The condition of the booklet is generally very good. The cover has one or two very minor scuffs but is clean and tidy, the staple spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
