RG027 The Essex Coast Branches of the GER

  • RG027  The Essex Coast Branches of the GER

NEW OCTOBER 2017. In April, May and July 1922 the Railway Magazine had a series of three articles entitled 'Essex Coast Branches of the Great Eastern Railway'.  They were written by J F Gairns.

He divided his survey into four parts: the Southend group of lines (including Southminster and Maldon East); the Clacton, Walton and Brightlingsea branches; the Harwich branch; and the Kelvedon, Tiptree and Tollesbury light railway.  For each section he took a brief look at its history, the features of the line itself and the traffic it carried at that date.

The articles are illustrated by his own snapshots of stations.  These were the GER station at Southend, Shenfield and Hutton, Wickford, Woodham Ferrers, Burnham-on-Crouch, Southminster, Maldon (East) and Heybridge, Clacton-on-Sea (two views), Brightlingsea, Manningtree, Bradfield, Parkeston Quay, Harwich Town and Kelvedon Low Level.

Two extra bonuses are added at the end.  The first is a quarter-page report from the Locomotive Magazine of October 1904 telling of the opening of the light railway to Tollesbury and giving a short description of it.  The second bonus, since Gairns's articles had no maps, are the three relevant pages from file MP001 which contains the diagrammatic maps of the whole of the GER system in 1919.
