180109 passes Helpston signal box and crossing, just north of Peterborough, with a Kings Cross to Hull service on 2nd August 2019. In the foreground are the two tracks of the Stamford line, while beyond the short gap are four ECML tracks, making six in total between the barriers, which probably explains why the busy crossing, the widest on Network Rail, is still locally operated from the box.
