Tetney - Gordon Luck

The GNR planned to build a line to connect Cleethorpes and Mablethorpe along the North Lincolnshire coast. The line was never constructed, but if it had been would have routed through the Tetney and Tetney Lock area and may have been a joint GCR/GNR venture.

Enterprising fishing boat owners would soon have started to develop harbour facilities at Tetney Lock as a means of getting the fish to market earlier than if landed further up the Humber estuary at Grimsby.

The layout represents this line as operated in the mid 1950s during the early steam to diesel transition with passenger traffic and freight comprising mainly general goods, coal, fish and grain.
