Lincolnshire old and new awaiting ferry passengers from Hull at New Holland Town Station in 1973. 2345, PBE124, is a Bristol Lodekka LD6G with ECW H33/27RD new in March 1957 retaining Tilling green livery with NBC fleetname. It contrasts with NBC green 1021, RVL249L, a Bristol LH6P with ECW B43F coachwork of September 1972.
2345 passed into NPSV use at Armoride, Earby, Lancs in September 1975, this corrects a version currently online elsewhere. I don't have full details for the LH, but believe it withdrawn in 1981 and sold 1982 without further recorded service.
Ferry, traditional bus services here and two stations on the Pier branch lasted for passengers until opening of the Humber Bridge on 24 June 1981. The present New Holland station is an unstaffed platform on an adjacent curved through line to Barton-upon-Humber.
