Steam through Dogsthorpe ! (1961)

A superb shot of the last days of railway traffic on the M&GN line at Dogsthorpe with the daily brick train departing east with its load from the local brickworks.

The building on the right is the large grain silo that still stands today at the entrance to the household waste tip at Dogsthorpe. The trackbed of the old M&GN line pretty much followed the route of today’s A47 from Dogsthorpe out through Eye to Thorney.
