180111 Cross Common 1 October 2009

180111 approaches Cross Common Level Crossing (near Wressle) with the 12:45 Hull to Kings Cross First Hull Trains service on 1 October 2009. It still carries the original First Great Western livery, with the branding subtly altered to read Hull Trains. Rather than a conventional picture which would only have accentuated the pylons in the background, I decided on a wider view and included the level crossing warning notices, giving this view of a typical modern automatic half barrier crossing, so common in rural eastern England.
