Further Notes

AC(T&)D - 1200 Wed 24/06/1981 - DRS; RPSGB. Rare case of a line and stations' planned closure before the end of the last day's service. 

The last scheduled ferry departures were, according to the commemorative ticket, Hull Corporation Pier 1930; New Holland Pier 1815 & 2000.

However, New Holland Town and Pier stations were closed at noon on the 24/06/1981 and the new station at New Holland on the south to west curve was opened along with the reopening of the Barton-on-Humber branch (TC 01/06/1981). Opening of the Humber Bridge occurred on the same day - RPSGB; DRSDSW.

 An account of the last day of service appears in Railways to New Holland and the Humber Ferries LP198 OP p94/5.
