On the branch from Gilberdyke to Goole there's just one intermediate station, Saltmarshe which despite all the changes it has seen over the years still very much retains an air of the typical country station. Although its station building and goods yard have gone it still has a signalbox, a typical later North Eastern Railway box, next to its level crossing. And the box itself is beautifully cared for and looked after.
Despite its off-the-beaton-track nature, it sees a significant amount of freight yet it seems to seldom be a destination for photographers or enthusiasts - which is rather a shame really...
