Centenary of the opening of the Grimsby & Immingham Electric Railway 15th May 1912

The Grimsby and Immingham Electric Railway was opened 100 years ago on 15th May 1912.

The Museum is very fortunate to have two examples of the rolling stock that ran on the line; Grimsby and Immingham 14 and Gateshead 5 that ran on the line as Grimsby & Immingham No 20.
