Chasing class 37`s in North Lincolnshire

6th July 2015

Class 37 No. 37175 leads a "top & tailed" 4 coach NR test train round West Marsh Junction in Grimsby heading towards
 Immingham via the Grimsby & District Light Railway.

The sidings on the right are now gradually returning to nature!

The train passes under my viewpoint on Cleveland Bridge and passes under the A180 trunk road.

Having negotiated the very tight curves from Great Coates No1 signalbox to Pyewipe Road signalbox the lead engine
now crosses Pyewipe Road and heads towards Immingham East on the Light Railway.

The train ran into Immingham Docks on the LH curve, which I missed by minutes, and is seen returning towards Grimsbys
Pyewipe Road with the backdrop of dock cranes.

A stop at Immingham East to pick up the single line token and the train heads towards Grimsby again.

A view of the train passing Goxhill station, which still retains its wheel operated crossing gates and semaphores,
on the Barton on Humber branch.

It passed underneath the overbridge and headed towards Oxmarsh Junction New Holland where it would collect
the single line token for the New Holland to Barton on Humber branch.

Barton on Humber Interchange, with bus connections to Hull or Scunthorpe....

....which normally only sees a single car 153 Northern Rail unit.

A brief stop here and it`s back to Grimsby and Cleethorpes via Habrough.
