170202 Selby 23 May 2001

The view of southbound trains approaching Selby station from the swing bridge is very restricted, so here is a view of a northbound train, which gives a far clearer view of the swing bridge. 170202 crosses the 1891 structure with the 08:33 Kings Cross to Hull service on 23 May 2001. At this time the newly created Hull Trains franchise was using hired in Anglia Railways Class 170s, prior to the introduction of their Class 222 units, which themselves had a relatively short life, being replaced by Class 180s displaced from First Great Western.
