The railway bridge across Oakenshaw Lane. The line (now dismantled) linked the old Midland line with the main East Coast spur line from Doncaster to Leeds. The junction was known as West Riding Junction.

Both lines are still in use today but not connected at this junction.
The East Coast Line is regularly used for passenger trains. The Midland Line served Monckton Coke and Chemical Works until the works was closed in 2014.
