Outgates level crossing near Nafferton
This photo does not illustrate a near miss - although the crossing is unguarded, the car driver coming the other way (a local farmer) had stopped to let this and another train pass. Northern's Sprinter unit 158791 was on a service from Hull to Scarborough.

The "cyclists dismount" sign is because this road is part of both National Cycle Route 1 and the Way of the Roses, i.e. regularly used long-distance routes.
The Way of the Roses
The Way of the Roses is a 170 mile signed cycle route from Morecambe to Bridlington, nearly all on public roads and making extensive use of other National Cycle Network routes. It forms a shorter and less demanding alternative to the original "coast to coast" cycle route. Most people who tackle it do it in three or four days, though some manage it in two.
National Cycle Network Route 1
National Route 1 of the National Cycle Network is a long distance cycle route connecting Dover and the Shetland Islands mainly via the east coast of England and Scotland. The route is all signed and open except between London and Woodbridge (in Suffolk) and between Whitby and Staithes (in Yorkshire).
