Photo's Of East Yorkshire Railways


Recommended Posts

Mick,

 

Have you still got those 1959 photos of the B12/3 which retired to Dairycoates shed for the repair of a hot axlebox? Once repaired, I wonder what Dairycoates used it for?

 

Cheers

 

Mike

The engine was run in on local Trip Pilots, and is known to have worked to King George Dock, it is seen here at Hessle. Photo, Neville Stead.

I think that tonight we shall go just a short distance to the south of Beverley to Beverley Parks L.C. on 14th May, 1984, and a glorious sunny evening.

 

I took many more photo's than posted here in an attempt to make a photographic survey of the crossing before it was, inevitably, modernised with AHB's and the demolition of the signal cabin. I will end for tonight with something rather different in the form of SR 4-6-0 777 Sir Lamiel on a test train - hence no number plates - she also set the lineside on fire in the Driffield area. I tried to pan this shot, hence the blurry cab-side.

 

Here is the signal cabin at Beverley Parks:

And here's another of the cabin:

Here's a photo' that shows one of the two gates:

In this photo' you can see how one gate was able go all the way across the roadway:

Here you can see that both gates were worked from the gate-wheel and not manually:

This is the up home signal:

This photo' shows the crossing from a distance from the Shepherd lane area:

And last for tonight is Sir Lamiel in March, 1982 at Beverley North:

With best regards,

 

Rob.

Thank you Mick for those excellent photo's. I look forward to more of the same - they fill in many gaps in the local knowledge.

 

Tonight, I thought that we would travel down the line to Bridlington on the 31st, July, 1987. This was the time when the new DMU's had just been introduced. Also, at Bridlington, the former goods yard had been lifted, leaving a sorry sight.  It can be seen that the canopy over platforms 5 and 6 was still intact, and had not yet been cut back in length.

 

Here's 150226 leaving Bridlington for Scarborough:

Here is what was left of the goods yard:

This a general view of what is today the 'front' of the station:

In this photo' you can see where the line to the goods yard ran:

Finally here's a photo' of what I think is 144 013 entering platform 4:

Here is a mid '50's view of Bridlington.

Mick,

 

Doesn't get much better than double headed D20's; great photo!!

 

I have a copy of the North Eastern 'white plan' for Bridlington, though I think copyright issues prevent me from posting it on here.

 

Is that huge North Eastern signal box still there and still operational?

 

Cheers

 

Mike

Thank you Mick for the signalling and layout diagrams of Bridlington South that you have posted. They are very useful, and answer quite a few questions for me.

 

Tonight it is a case of going right down the line to Scarborough on the 26th July, 1987. There are two class 20's on the Tees-Tyne Spa Express. Also in an adjacent platform is a 2-car 110 'Calder Valley' DMU. Indeed the station is really quite busy, as was usually the case in the summer months.

 

Here's the two 20's on the railtour with 20172 leading:

And here is a rear view of 20173 on the same train:

And here's a photo' of the class 110 DMU:

Thanks for putting up these diagrams (and the pictures of Bridlington generally); having visited Bridlington myself last week it's interesting to see what the layout used to look like and difficult to imagine what it must have looked like compared to what is there now, with houses built all over where platforms 1,2 and 3 used to be, not to mention the loss of the loco depot area and the carriage sidings now subsiding into the undergrowth.  Also explains why terminating trains heading for platform 6 seem to take such a tortuous route to get there!

Thanks for that photo' Mick. It shows, again, how much things have changed. I see that the first coach is an ex-GER BTK. That is a good reason to consider making a model of one for a possible excursion rake of coaches.

 

With best regards,

 

Rob.

Hi, everyone. Tonight we are having a look at the Flemingate area of Beverley. Three of the photo's date from late June, 1984. The forth photo' is from early 1985, and is of the cabin at the crossing.

 

This photo' shows the L.C. and cabin from a footbridge which crosses the railway about halfway between Flemingate L.C. and Beverley Station L.C:

77944E72-F375-41BF-B872-EB74A17EFB68.jpeg.0e6e8a794a524440fedcb5d2b656ed1b.jpeg

On the same day, a class 105 Cravens DMU and class 114 Derby 'Heavyweight' DMU approaches from Beverley Station:

This is a photo' of the DMU going away to Cottingham:

BE9B3D9A-5608-4780-B78E-2AD02EEB3AE2.jpeg.955b7845e759154e162d79dd12e87e5b.jpeg

Here we are in early 1985 at the cabin at Flemingate L.C., It was little more than a basic gate box by this date. There were still some allotments each side of the line beyond the cabin:

With best regards,

 

Rob.

Picture wise, I can add nothing, apart from the attached "Signalling Diagram" to Rob's photographs. Though a little history may be of interest.

 Flemingate was a new signalbox of July 1890. It had a 12 lever locking frame plus 1 Gate Wheel, of these 10 levers were in use. During September 1932 the LNER considered Flemingate as a "Block Post" to be an expensive luxury and made plans to reduce it to a Gate Box at an estimated cost of £740/-. This work was carried out sometime during 1934, possibly on 13 March.

 The level crossing gates and wickets were replaced by the present barriers on Sunday 18 February 1968, and from Sunday 17 March 1985 were worked from Beverley signalbox. Flemingate was demolished 6 October 1985. As an aside, one of Rob's photo's is taken off Chantley Lane footbridge, this too was once a level crossing.

Thank you Mick. That is most informative, and it is great to see the photo' of the Signalling Diagram. It shows that things were greatly simplified after the conversion to a Gate Box. I thought that the footbridge had once been the site of a level crossing - an early conversion.

 

With regards,

 

Rob.

Beverley Cherry Tree general view 1980.

 

attachicon.gifCHERRY TREE c1980.jpg

 

Out of interest Mick would you know what those 16T mineral wagons were loaded with under the sheeting? Could it be potatoes or sugar beet?

 

Also do you have any shots of Fliey and Filey Butlins terminus at all?

 

Thanks,

 

Mark

Here's a picture of Filey Station. Photographer unkown.

 The mineral wagons were loaded with chalk, it was sent to Scotland.

Thanks Mick,

 

That's a lovely photo.  It's quite an interesting layout but obviously the Scarborough side of the crossing has changed with the demolition of the goods shed.

 

Also thanks for clarifying the load in the mineral wagons. I guess with a rich seam of chalk going from Flamborough across the Yorkshire Wolds it makes sense.
