I used to take this train to Boston and my Great Grandfather was Station Master! No train to Boston anymore and the busses take ages!

I am a Lincolnshire resident who used to visit Louth regularly. I am very knowledgeable on level crossings and the Beeching closures of Lincolnshire, and am doing campaigns for reopenings myself; this is indeed a very important route that should never have closed. You have my full support. I would like to ask, though: what about the LWR? Would they have to be replaced by this proposed National Rail line, or a new route? Also, you will have to find a new route into Grimsby because the A16 was built on the trackbed between it and Waltham.

Thanks for adding your voice.

We can now see that Beeching as a huge mistake - especially with the need to cut carbon we need to reopen railways wherever there is an economic case.

Keep going at some point they will realize that rail is better than having hundreds of cars and lorries on the roads. Wish someone was as keen as you about the Robinhood line.

I would persevere. If at first you don't succeed try, try and try again. It is worth pursuing.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Excellent petition. We definitely need more railways back to get traffic off the roads. By the way, in case anyone`s interested I have made 2 petitions to help re-open and extend the Llangollen Railway in North Wales, as well as pressing the councils to keep the derelict sections of the line safeguarded in their counties. Here are the links to sign them:
