General
Barton-on-Humber railway station serves the town of Barton-upon-Humber in North Lincolnshire, England. The station, which was once the terminus of a 5 km (3 miles) branch line from New Holland, is nowadays the terminus of the Barton Line services operating from Cleethorpes. It is situated 36 km (22 miles) west of the resort. There is a connecting bus service from the town to Hull across the Humber Bridge which was introduced on the opening of the bridge to replace the New Holland Ferry. Approach to the branch was by a triangular junction at New Holland which enabled passenger trains to operate a New Holland Pier to Barton service in connection with the ferries and rail services from Cleethorpes and for freight to have direct access from the main line via Ulceby Junction. When the Humber Bridge opened the junction was removed and passenger services operated directly from Cleethorpes via the new platform at New Holland.
