contents and extra information for this book »

The Midland & Great Northern Joint Railways Committee was the largest railway of its kind in Great Britain. These two volumes explore the complexities of the infrastructure of this fascinating railway, with the modeller very much in mind. Volume Two covers the signalling and permanent way of the line, with further information on the many miscellaneous fixtures which adorned the railway, and details on the painting colours of buildings and fitments. The book then completes the analysis of M&GN stations and structures as the line traversed Norfolk through the Wensum Valley and West Norfolk, then onto the Fens, where it ran through Cambridgeshire to reach Peterborough, and Lincolnshire to reach Spalding and Bourne.

The main building at Fakenham Town, seen here in 1902, was the first 'large pavilion' constructed by Wilkinson & Jarvis. The platforms were in timber due to the site conditions, being only a matter of yards from the River Wensum. They stayed in this form until circa 1916. M&GN Trust

Wisbech goods station, taken from Leverington Road crossing, looking north towards Horse Shoe Lane signal box and showing the complex pointwork required to service the goods loop, sidings and goods shed. The level crossing gates are good examples of the M&GN standard, although mounted on later L&NER concrete posts. Culvert No. 26 is not obvious, except for the numberplate in the right foreground.
