144014 Sherburn-in-Elmet 17 September 1996

144014 pulls away from Sherburn-in-Elmet on 17 September 1996 with the 17:52 York to Hull service. Although the level crossing has been closed to road vehicles and replaced with a bridge (upon which I am standing), and clearly the only crossing over the line in this view is a footpath, the level crossing barriers were still operational when this picture was taken, merrily going up and down for each train for no reason whatsoever. Unfortunately this sort of stupidity is typical of Britain in recent years.
