Fig 1 - Sidings

Fig 1 - Sidings

A good view of the Boulby branch joining the main line. It is also next to the siding at Saltburn which would be used to stable charters etc, although it's rarely used.

Fig 2 - Foot Crossing

Fig 2 - Foot Crossing

A foot crossing that has good views in either direction. It is on the side of an embankment and I found it necessary to be on the "wrong side" to take photos, however there is plenty of space between the boundary fence and the track and none of the drivers seemed bothered by me, even got a friendly wave from one of the 56 drivers! :)

Fig 3 - Cliff Lift

If you have a space half an hour or so to fill, the cliff lift is also worth a look.
