Chasing class 37`s in North Lincolnshire

6th July 2015 - continued

Shortly after leaving Barton on Humber the train lead by 37175 crosses Barrow Haven and passes through
Barrow on Humber station.

Thornton Abbey station just beyond Goxhill sees the train pass at speed.

It came to rest for several minutes at Ulceby where the Barton branch joins the busy line to Immingham.

It began to rain heavily as the 37`s took the LH line at Ulceby Junction and headed towards Cleethorpes.

Some time later the ensemble, with 37219 leading, appeared at Barnetby East and stopped at the home signal.

It was booked to run through the sidings as seen here...

...and then return to Barnetby East and take the crossover.

It is seen here coming back into the sidings via the complex crossover pointwork.

It eventually took the Scunthorpe line, on the right, at Wrawby Junction and headed back to Doncaster West.
