This book is the companion to the author's 'Branchlines Around Spalding' and covers the old Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway route from Peterborough North station through Wisbech and Sutton Bridge to South Lynn and finally to the Great Eastern Railway's King's Lynn station.

It also complements Andrew Ingram's 'Branchlines Around Wisbech' which covers part of the same route.

As with all the Middleton M&GN books, you get 120 b/w photos along with reproductions of large scale Ordnance Survey maps of all the relevant stations and other main features of the line.

The majority of the photos are of the infrastructure rather than the usual 119 locomotives and a token one of a signal box or bridge, which other authors seem to think constitutes a book about a railway line. And it's all the better for it.

Mike Back comes from an M&GN family and worked on the line in its final years, so he's very well placed to provide an authoritative commentary on the photographs.

There's a potted history of the route, a note on its geography, some examples of passenger services along it, and then highly informative captions to each photo. The photos date from the early days of the line right up until its closure and beyond.

The locations included are as follows:

Clenchwarton
Dogsthorpe Siding
Eye Green
Ferry
King's Lynn
King's Lynn Harbour Junction
Murrow East
Peterborough North
South Lynn
Sutton Bridge
Terrington
Thorney
Tydd
Walpole
Wisbech North
Wisbech St. Mary ('Polly')
Wryde

As you drive along the A47 east of Peterborough today, you'll be on the actual trackbed of the first part of the line, and it then disappears off into the Fens near Eye.

Verified Purchase
Loved the book, was only in my early years when the MGNJ railway was closed. I missed so much. The booked conveyed with pictures how it used to be and brought back memories of how I remember this great railway. The book is layed out very well regard text and pics, well worth buying if you are interested in the M&GN Joint Railway

In times like we have now many lorries that clog up our roads without loosing jobs could have been put on our many closed railways.
