The Great Eastern Railway Society has produced a series of DVDs recording past issues of the LNER and British Railways (Eastern) Magazines. They make a very interesting read and as such we thought that it would be a great idea to track down articles and events that happened in and around Grantham. You can read more here.

Of great interest to all railway enthusiasts. We would like to let you know that the 'Grantham Railway Society' (GRS) will be holding another meeting in the town on Monday 17th October 2022. Non-members are very welcome! Here are the details of the programme:-

Although 'Tracks through Grantham' focuses on the railway in and around the local area, we often get enquiries from people who have a general interest in all aspects of the wider railway scene. With that in mind we would like to let you know that the 'Grantham Railway Society' (GRS) hold regular meetings in the town and present a very interesting variety of programmes for railway enthusiasts. Here's their current schedule for 2022. Look out for the GRS 2023 programme when it is released later in the year.

We've just added a new page to the website in which Max Hooley recalls a most enjoyable afternoon spent at Grantham station on Saturday 26th September 1959. Max has also kindly supplied a selection of the photographs that he took on the day with what was then his first camera, a Brownie 127. You can read more about his visit here Memories of an enjoyable afternoon at Grantham in 1959

 

We've just added a new page to the website describing a marathon 24 hour period spent on the platforms at Grantham. It's based around the 1961 Summer Working Time Table (WTT) and includes a selection of suitable photographs to illustrate some of the 300+ workings and movements taking place between midnight and midnight. You can step back in time and watch the action here.

We are currently working on a new article for the TTG Website that will specifically  focus on the 1961 Summer Working Time Table (12th June to 10th September 1961). Lots of information has come to light during our research, but we are now actively seeking details relating to Grantham 34F Locomotive Diagrams for the A3 Pacifics at this time. Another avenue of our research covers the engine changes on express passenger trains at Grantham during the same period, so if you can assist with any of the above please do let us know.

Thanks - The TTG Team

Tracks through Grantham have recently been in touch with Phil Wilson who lived in Grantham until the late 1960s.  Phil has kindly allowed TTG the opportunity to share some of his photographs and detailed notes made during many spotting trips around the area in the early 1960s. This is the latest page to be added to our Spotters Corner section. If you have a story of your own, then please do get in touch. You can visit Phil's page here
