Bank Top (Swinefleet Peat Railway) 1 September 2002

The rusting rails of the disused 3 ft gauge Swinefleet Peat Railway stretch out across Goole Moors on 1 September 2002, with the gravel ballast contrasting sharply with the black peat diggings on either side of the line. The peat extraction has left the railway on a substantial embankment at this point. Eggborough Power Station can just be seen on the horizon at the far end of the line, while the chimney of Drax Power Station peers out from behind the bushes on the extreme right of the picture.
