153328 New Holland (Barrow Road Crossing) 18 September 2012

The Barton-upon-Humber branch is basically composed of two straight sections connected by a sharp ninety degree bend. The curve at New Holland is the site of the junction with the former pier branch, and is pictured here on the morning of 18 September 2012. 153328 rounds the curve with the 2F84 07:58 Barton-upon-Humber to Cleethorpes Northern Rail service. The level crossing gives access to various factories surrounding the small dock on banks of the Humber Estuary. The track in the foreground is the disused line to the pier. It is not an optical illusion, Barrow Road Crossing signal box does indeed have a distinct backwards lean!
