Brigg Line Blog 10th June 2017

Here is the Brigg Line Blog for Saturday 10th June. 

All The Stations

All The Stations is a project to travel to ALL the national railway stations in Britain over the spring and summer of 2017, and to create an online documentary film about the journey.


On Saturday Geoff and Vicki travelled on the Brigg Line from Gainsborough Central to Cleethorpes via Brigg, both of them had done a trail trip before and the video of that is HERE

Service and Route

The wet weather put off a number of people travelling on the normally busy services at the start of the day but as the weather picked up many cam out to travel the Brigg Line with a number of trips recorded between stations with Gainsborough Central been very popular.

Visit Brigg

The latest area to be targeted with Visit Brigg posters is Grimsby, this area is always popular with travellers coming to Brigg by Train on a Saturday and the Brigg Line posterboard is well placed on the Sheffield platform so in full view.


Thankfully a week where no criminal damage has taken place, the British Transport Police visited Brigg station within hours of last Saturdays criminal damage.

Part of the Sheffield platform has been taped off where the railing were broken by vandals.

Engineering Works

Between Sunday 11th and Monday the 19th June a large section of the railway is closed at Worksop for Network Rail engineering works, this means that a replacement bus service will operate on the Brigg Line on Saturday 17th June.
