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.

The geographic location of the crossing can be seen on a current OS Map. The map will place this location at the centre of the map panel, roll the mouse over the icon(s) to reveal what they represent. Increase the scale using the scale selector on the left to separate closely positioned icons.

This video covers all eight locations from Gilberdyke to Melton Lane inclusive.
