About Mumby Road Station

Mumby Road had two platforms with a passing loop with a timber building comprising the booking office and waiting room on the down platform but no buildings on the up platform. The loop was only used during the summer when excursion trains to Mablethorpe used the line.

A small single storey signalbox stood on the platform adjacent to the station building, this controlled access to the goods yard on the opposite side which comprised two sidings, one running into a timber goods shed. There was a water tower between the two sidings.

The goods yard had cattle pens and 1 1 ton 10 cwt crane. The yard closed on 30th Match 1964 and the goods shed was quickly demolished and the sidings lifted.

The station has been demolished and replaced with farm buildings standing on the site. The weigh office is still extant within the farm yard. The stationmaster's house still stands adjacent to the bridge over the B1449.
