Isle of Axholme Joint Railway

Isle of Axholme Joint Railway

The Axholme Joint Railway was built as a joint enterprise between the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway (L&Y) and the North Eastern Railway (NER). It became joint property on 1 October 1901. The line ran from Marshland Junction, south east of Goole, to Haxey, a junction with another joint railway (Great Northern and Great Eastern Joint Railway) between Doncaster and Gainsborough, a distance of 19.5 miles. There was a branch line from Reedness to Fockerby on the River Trent estuary; and a freight-only branch from Epworth to Hatfield Moor.

The line closed to passengers on 15 July 1933; it is now closed altogether.
