Two videos for the price of one on this page!

The first video includes eight locations in an area largely flat and abounding with level crossings.

The second video (scroll down to find it!) revisits the same eight locations and adds further two at Saltmarshe and Green Oak Goit. This video represents a departure from the usual FARSAP in that most of it is filmed from above. It also features a short career interview with Brian Harris - the interview is the short bit, not the career!

Gilberdyke Signal Box is situated at Gilberdyke Junction which is to the west of Gilberdyke station. At this point the Hull and Selby Railway is joined by the Hull and Doncaster branch of the North Eastern Railway which opened in 1869. OS Map.

Oxmardyke looks after a level crossing where Tongue Lane crosses the railway. OS Map.

Broomfleet is next in line where Carr Lane crosses the line. OS Map.
