Isle of Axholme Light Railway
05. Apr 2006 at 13:05
The Axholme Joint Railway was built as a joint enterprise between the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway (L&Y) and the North Eastern Railway (NER). It became joint property on 1 October 1901. The line ran from Marshland Junction, SE of Goole, to Haxey on another joint railway (this time owned by Great Northern and Great Eastern Railways) between Doncaster and Gainsborough, a distance of 19.5 miles. There was a branch line from Reedness to Fockerby on the River Trent estuary; and a freight-only branch from Epworth to Hatfield Moor.
The line closed to passengers on 15 July 1933; it is now closed altogether.
