Type and Period (1)
The original Great Northern Railway ran as far as Doncaster, using running powers from there to York. In 1863 the North Eastern Railway obtained authorisation to build a new direct route from Shaftholme Junction (north of Doncaster) to Chaloner Whin Junction (south of York) via Selby. Two connecting spurs were also authorised, one at Heck with the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, and another at Joan Croft Junction and Applehurst Junction with the West Riding and Grimsby Railway. Opened in 1871.
