After the original scheme for the Great Northern Railway, Mr. Joseph Gibbs re-surveyed the line some years later but was again unsuccessful.

In 1844 the scheme was again brought forward, as the London and York Railway; eventually a Bill was obtained for it in a modified form, under that title, which was afterwards changed to the Great Northern Railway.
