Lincoln Central Station, 1992
Lincoln Central Station, 1992
Looking towards High Street Level Crossing, where a Lincolnshire Road Car bus is crossing, on a bright June evening. The 11th-century tower of St Mary le Wigford Church is on the right. Preserved diesel shunter D3167 is shown in close-up in Dave Hitchborne's SK9770 : The shortest length of BR track?.

The fine array of semaphore signals survived for many more years, as did the three-way point (by then a rarity on a main running line) in front of the bus. A new track layout enabling two-way running from all platforms and new signalling came into use on 1 September 2008. Richard Croft's SK9770 : Central Station, taken from the level crossing, shows the new layout
