Bank Top (Swinefleet Peat Railway) 1 September 2002

How about this for some seriously dodgy tracklaying! It is not surprising that the Swinefleet Peat Railway suffered from numerous derailments when the switchback nature of the track is taken into account. This picture, taken on 1 September 2002, shows the line heading across Goole Moors from the main depot at Bank Top. Peat has been extracted from either side of the line, leaving it on an embankment. Nature is already reclaiming the area in the background, and the whole area is now a nature reserve, with all traces of the 3 ft gauge railway removed.
