SK8055 : Newark Crossing

taken 7 years ago, near to Newark on Trent, Nottinghamshire, Great Britain

Newark Crossing
Newark Crossing
This is the only location in the UK where two main lines simply cross each other on the level. Originally, the Midland Railway crossed the Great Northern Railway. The lack of any connection continued for over 100 years; only after nationalisation was the connecting curve to the left added. Here, an East Coast Main Line train (successor to the Great Northern Railway) hurtles through towards London.
East Coast Main Line
The East Coast Main Line is a 393 mile long high speed electrified railway between London and Edinburgh, via Peterborough, Doncaster, York and Newcastle. It was constructed between 1846 & 1871 by several different rail companies.
