Great Northern Engine Sheds

I know this is why off beam to Cornwall but I am still very interested in railway history of my local area. Browsing though a discount book shop the other week I turned up this little treasure.

It covers sheds such as Lincoln, Louth, Mablethorpe, Horncastle, Gainsborough, Spilsby, Wainfleet and Boston in Lincolnshire as well as those further a field at Colwick, Derby, Newark, Nottingham and Retford.

Of the Lincolnshire sheds Boston would make a good layout. It has a backdrop of terrace houses, shed buildings either end and a Coaling plant that would mask the exit point nicely. It's worth a look.
