Waiting for the train to pass
An East Midlands Trains Class 153 passes through Hilton Crossing while a number of motorists, including the photographer, wait with varying degree of patience. The crossing is manually operated, by a crossing keeper in a high-visibility tabard, who sits in a small hut next to the crossing.
