BRIGG PICK (ME) UP FOR THOSE WHO LIKE LOCAL HISTORY


A long lost but fondly remembered feature of the Brigg railway scene decades ago is now creating interest online - decades later.
On the Manchester, Sheffield & Lincolnshire Railway Group's Facebook forum, local enthusiast Phil Hewson shared some pictures showing the pick-up goods that used to call to collect and drop off wagons in sidings adjoining the station.
This service was worked by steam locos for many decades, but by the mid-1960s diesels had taken over.
The pick-up set off from North Nottinghamshire, stopping at local stations on its way through to Immingham.
Much of Brigg's traffic was coal from collieries ordered by local merchants, including Brocklesby's.
Due to reduced demand, British Rail curtailed the pick-up service during the mid-1980s.
Brigg Blog can recall watching the pick-up shunting wagons in and near the station prior and after the switch-over from steam to diesel.
It was interesting to see the movements required to get wagons assembled in the required order.
There were then several sets of sidings and even a goods depot (shed).
Phil has kindly shared some of his pictures from the early 1980s, showing diesels on pick-up duties in Brigg.
