Although Lincolnshire is not a county normally associated with narrow gauge railways, the county had over 140 miles of track laid on farms in at least 50 separate locations from Alkborough to Crowland in the south. Although also used for bulb fields in the Spalding area, this book just relates to their use in relation to the planting and harvesting of potatoes. Many of these lines were short and powered by horses; others were longer and used internal combustion engines or small steam engines.
