WHEN YOU COULD STILL TAKE A TRAIN FROM BRIGG TO LONDON


Rail campaigner Paul Johnson tells Brigg Blog that he is always scouring online auction sites for timetables from past years.
A recent purchase was a British Rail Eastern Region timetable covering the period May 1968 to May 1969, laid out so  people travelling from Brigg had information about connections to London by changing trains once they reached Retford.
Looking at the 1968 timetable, Brigg station received five trains in each direction, Monday to Saturday, including the 4.51am mail/newspaper service.
But Brigg lost the majority of it Sunday passenger trains that year.
October 1, 1993 - 25 years ago - saw passenger trains cut back even further to their current level, Brigg station only receiving a Saturdays service, with none at all Monday to Friday or on Sunday.
Rail bosses shifted Sheffield-Cleethorpes passenger traffic away from the  Brigg line in favour of the route through Scunthorpe and Barnetby, which is still the case today, with just three Saturday trains in each direction serving our town.
That sporadic service on the Brigg line continues to be hit by rail union strike action.
Paul tells us more one-day strikes are expected to affect Northern company services on Saturdays October 6, 13 and 20.
If you are planning a train trip from Brigg, our advice is to check the latest position by calling 0800 200 60 60.

Paul and other rail supporters will be visiting Brigg station on October 1 to mark the 25th anniversary of the town's  train service being reduced to one day a week. They plan to visit the Deli Diner, on Wrawby Street, before making their way to the station about mid-day.



DINERS FROM BRIGG CAN GET A PIZZA THE ACTION


People from Brigg and district may be interested in the latest in a series of theme nights coming up at a local pub/restaurant.
An Italian Entertainment Night will be staged on Tuesday, September 25 at the Jolly Miller, on Brigg Road, Wrawby.
The hostelry will be launching its wood-fired pizza oven.

BRIGG BLOG'S FOOTBALL ROUND-UP FOR SEPTEMBER 22, 2018


Brigg Town Football Club recorded their fifth successive victory in the Balcan Lincolnshire League Premier yesterday (Saturday, September 22, 2018).
The Zebras beat Wyberton 3-2 at The Hawthorns with two goals from Jake Reed and one from Reece Moody. The winning goal was a very late one.
Brigg stay top of the table, having drawn their opening match but won the remainder in a cracking start to the 2018/19 campaign.
The Zebras have a three-point lead over second-placed Lincoln United Reserves who also won yesterday.
In the EC Surfacing Scunthorpe & District League, sponsored by a Brigg company, local sides had mixed fortunes in the T.S.W. Printers Sporting Shield first round.
Barnetby United won 5-2 when hosting Sherpa at Silver Street. On the mark were Ben Hunt (2), Micky Dunnion, Andy Bradley and an own goal.
Briggensians, of division one, suffered a 3-2 defeat when visiting second division newcomers Hibaldstow Wanderers in a local derby.
Daniel Harding (2) and Mark Thornber scored for Hibaldstow, with Steve Broughton and Kyle Reeves on target for the Brigg team.
In division two, table-topping Barnetby United Reserves drew 2-2 at Limestone Rangers Reserves.
Liam Dawson and Ross Hempstock got the goals for Barnetby, who had won their previous three league games.


BEN KEEPS BARNETBY FOOTBALLERS IN THE HUNT



BARNETBY UNITED 5 SHERPA 2

Ben Hunt made it 4 goals in his first 2 Barnetby games as he helped his side to a 5-2 win against Sherpa in the 1st round of the TSW Printers Sporting Shield.
Sweeping changes again were made from the previous week, which now appears to be the norm in local football, and the Railwaymen took time to settle.
On the quarter hour a flowing move was finished off with a sweet and assured left-footed finish by Andy Bradley.
5 minutes later a scramble from a free kick saw the evergreen Micky Dunnion put Barnetby 2-0 to the good.
A shot in their own foot gifted Sherpa a penalty from which Kyle Reeves coolly slotted home to make the score 2-1 at the interval.
30 seconds into the 2nd half the lively Blendell flashed a centre across the Sherpa box that was inadvertently turned into the Sherpa net by a defender.
3-1 became 4-1 moments later when Blendell’s centre was turned home by Hunt. He added his 2nd moments later and the game was almost over.
With 20 minutes remaining Broughton pulled a goal back for Sherpa latching on to a through but Barnetby held firm.
Match report and pictures from Barnetby's Lee Fielden, to whom Brigg Blog extends its thanks once again.
