Good evening, everyone. This evening, courtesy of jsb303, on Flickr, we have a journey to Market Weighton, and a look at the east junction as K1, 62007, takes the line to Driffield, on a summer Saturday extra to Bridlington. The date is unknown, but probably the late 1950’s.

Good evening, everyone. This evening, we see, courtesy of JohnGreyTurner on Flickr, one of the Class 14 ‘Camels’ at Seven Section, Dairycoates, Hull, in about 1968. The loco is working from Wilmington to Hessle on a Presflo trip.

The walking old railways prog on Ch 5 featured the York - Hull route, worth watching in catch up if you haven’t already seen it.

This chap was on it

His videos are absolutely superb and better presented than most modern documentaries he certainly hasn't 'popped in to lend a hand ' something which I hate on modern TV , must be good for Dixon shares as accross the nation size 10 boots go through many a flat screen! 

 

Seriously thought this bloke should be taken on by a TV company

Good evening, everyone. This evening, courtesy of Syd Young on Flickr, is a photo’ taken on the 21st May, 1981. It was taken during the rebuilding of Hull Paragon station roof. This photo’ was acquired by Mr. Young along with several others from that period of time during 1979 to 1981.
It shows class 55, 55018, Ballymoss, waiting to leave on train 1A18, the 12:45 Hull to London King's Cross, on the 21st May, 1981. Station pilot, 03112, can also be seen, along with quite a lot of Mk1 carriages.

Good evening, everyone. That sounds right, Railpassion, there’s a lot going on at Bridlington from Saturday, 23rd October. Here’s the notice about it on Beverley station. I wonder why rail replacement buses cannot serve Nafferton - are the roads unsuitable?

Well, for this evening, I now have a photo’, courtesy of Syd Young on Flickr, of Melton Lane, on the 23rd November, 2018, the last  day of the semaphores on the mainline from Hull. It shows a class 144 Pacer, in misty conditions.

The signals and track layout now in their last hours. Tomorrow is the final opportunity to travel over the existing layout. 

South Box used to control 30 points until the 70s then reduced to around 11 points in 1983 and now soon to be just 5.

Good evening, everyone. Well today I went to Scarborough, and was able to take a selection of photo’s, from the train, of some of the things to be seen at Bridlington. So, for this evening three photo’s follow, and show a crossover assembled on top of the former carriage sidings, then some of the machines and equipment, and finally a view of another turnout before reaching the station itself. Please excuse the reflections from the carriage windows.

So, the old era draws to a final close, with the new, slimmer era, about to start.

 

Best regards,

Good evening, everyone. Well, this evening, there’s only a few hours left and then the work really gets underway at Bridlington bringing the era of the ‘traditional railway’ to a close at Bridlington.

So, to move to something else, this evening I have a photo’, courtesy of Syd Young on Flickr. It shows Deltic, class 55, 55002, The King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry as it follows the coaching stock, out of Hull Paragon station, from train 1D02, the 12.05 London King’s Cross to Hull, on the 31st March, 1981.

Good afternoon, everyone. Well, I’m about to freeze you all to death with a photo’, by Syd Young on Flickr, of a scene from the 3rd December, 2010. It’s right in the middle of that freezing cold weather and snow over one foot deep. We are at Cottingham, and a class 158, 158793, is very cautiously making it’s way, through the deep snow, from Hull to Bridlington,  near Thwaite Street crossing, Cottingham.

Good evening, everyone. Thank you, Railpassion, for the latest update on Bridlington. It’s most interesting to see the relaying on the trackwork, and the signalling works. It will be so different upon completion. I hope you’ll be able to keep the updates coming.

So, this evening, it’s another photo’ from Syd Young on Flickr, and this shows quite a sight at Hull Paragon station with 31115 attached to the front of train 1A18, the 12:45 Hull to London King's Cross on the 22nd August, 1979 before departing. The failed 47552, is coupled behind it and 37140, which was also under power.

Sunday at the Bridlington blockade

 

I sorta screwed up here as I was keen for a look if there were infrastructure trains on the loose. I made the mistake of not looking at Driffield on RTT, Bridlington doesn't show the trains (in hindsight I presume Driffield/Nafferton to Seamer is a possession) and as they haven't run by Seamer they don't show it either.

 

Were the trains double ended or were they going up to Hunmanby/Filey to run the locos around (I am assuming one the tracks in Brid station isn't usable)?

Hi, some single one or two double. I think they used the old layout with wrong direction movements. 7 trains were in on Saturday standing along the single line up to Sewerby. As they left 4 more came in today. 

The new Up Main is connected but the new crossover is still to be lifted into place. This may occur overnight. 

The down main may be removed tonight or tomorrow. 

The lever frame in the box is still in place. 

Edit. Trains lined up along the  gradient buffering up until the last one, which was top and tailed, arrived. Leading locos were then coupled to preceding trains. Last one out is now top and tailed.

Aaaah that makes more sense than running them through to the next bit of double track!

There has been some route learning done via Seamer as well in case the trains have had to go out that way, some of the spent ballast has previously gone out that way and reversed at Seamer)
