Rail stations would put towns on the right track

Share this article

EDITOR – Although Louth and Mablethorpe are considered to be growing towns, I think there’s one thing they lack: a train station.

I would be interested to know if anyone else has paid this any thought. Places like Wainfleet and Skegness have train stations, good transport links.

For myself, I find they are more difficult to get to. Myself and I guess many others are extremely travel sick travelling on buses and in cars. I get migraines and sickness.

To me a train is a real Godsend and, more seriously, the only way I can travel without being extremely ill. Do you think people would leave their cars at home more if there were good rail links?

And would it be used by commuters? Would it increase the popularity of Louth and Mablethorpe, which they so much want, even though they are completely different directions?

Mablethorpe apparently had a train station some years ago, probably as long as 50 years ago. Remnants are apparently all that exists of the old track.

Closed either for financial reasons or lack of usage. But time has moved on. Do you think it should be brought back to life would it be used? What do you think?

If you agree seriously and it’s something you want please write to your local MP. Otherwise it will be discussed and nothing will happen.

Maybe a protest, depending how strongly you feel. Other towns have them. Why not Louth and Mablethorpe?
