142092 Ryther 1 October 2009

142092 rattles past Ryther with the 10:20 York to Selby Northern Rail service on 1 October 2009. This is a relatively new section of railway, opened in 1983. Known as the Selby diversion, it not only avoids the town of that name with its sharp curves and swing bridge, but also took the East Coast Mainline away from the developing Selby Coalfield with its possible problems of subsidence.
