Brayton Junction
Brayton Junction
The main line was formerly the East Coast Main Line.

The branch was a connecting curve to a line bypassing Selby that was built as late as 1912 for coal traffic to Goole and Hull. It was later truncated to serve as a siding to a ballast tip at Barlow and is now simply a short stub to a Network Rail maintenance yard.
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.
