An interesting station on the south side of the River Humber was New Holland Pier, which provided a link to Hull Corporation Quay via a ferry. In this view, apart from the typical Class 114 DMU, there is a wagon in the centre siding containing coal for the paddle steamers. The platform on the left was in fact used by cars to access the ferries. The station closed in June 1981 when the Humber bridge opened. However, the pier and buildings are remarkably intact (2019), the structure now supporting a conveyor for bulk produce such as animal feed.
