The Embsay Bolton branch is disconnected from the Skipton-Swinden line which is still used for the quarry. I just thought it was illogical that the heritage trains started from Embsay and not from nearby Skipton which is much larger and has an active station. It is also mentioned on their website that they would like to start from Skipton.

New bridge installed in UK over busy rail line


www.WorldHighways.com

Quote:
Work to install a new bridge for the UK’s busiest rail freight line has been carried out over the A160 at the Port of Immingham. The project forms part of the Port of Immingham Improvement Scheme, a €118.15 million (£88.4 million) series of works being carried out on behalf of Highways England. The project involves upgrading 5km of the A160 from single carriageway to dual carriageway, and constructing a number of new structures. Because of the volume of rail traffic using the stretch of track, the new bridge had to be installed within a tight 76 hour window.
Or maybe it went under the rail line
Quote:
As well as carrying the country’s busiest freight railway line, the new bridge will allow the new highway link to pass underneath it.

Which is also what theGovernment think happened.
