Depends what exactly you are looking for.

For starters, there's Volume 27 of "British Railways - Past and Present - Lincolnshire" by Roger Hill & Carey Vessey (1996) which includes various nostalgic and more recent photographs of the county's railways.

"Lincolnshire Railways" (2016) and "Lost Railways of Lincolnshire" (2007), both by Alan Stennett, might also be of interest.

I'll defer to suggestions on books on unbuilt railways to other members on the forum.

I have 2 books on my shelves which look relevant: P. King and D.R. Hewins, The Railways around Grimsby, Foxline, reprinted 1998; and J.G. Ruddock and R.E. Pearson, The Railway History of Lincoln, 2nd ed, 1985, the latter being particularly good. I see I paid £18 for it, but that must have been over 25 years ago, so no idea how much it might be now if you can find a second-hand copy.

The 1985 Ruddock and Pearson book can still be acquired second hand for around £15 + postage. Two or three online booksellers seem to have this title in stock.
