Selby railway swing bridge
With no rail service on Boxing Day, the bridge has been swung to leave the river free for navigation throughout the day. This bridge used to be a thorn in the flesh of the East Coast Main Line as it required a severe speed restriction. Due to the likelihood of subsidence north of Selby when mining operations in the Selby coalfield expanded in the late 1970s, a new section of line, bypassing Selby, was opened in 1983.
