The ferry service was operated by paddle steamers of the Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire Railway who in May purchased 7, Nelson Street a for use as a their northern terminus. This was enlarged in with construction of the present building. The service ended with the opening of the Humber Bridge on 24th June Having stood empty for many years the building has now been converted into apartments. The MSL trefoil device and construction date are still in place at the top of the building.

In a small ferry service was opened from the creek across the Humber to Hull. The name really caught on when the New Holland Proprietors set about operating an improved ferry service.

The operation at New Holland expanded rapidly; in the Yarborough Arms pub was built. A stage coach service began in but it was with improving the road and buying the Magna Charta ferry in that mail stage coaches began to use the New Holland ferry. From the public authorities had gained the right to operate a ferry from Hull to Barton. In September Joseph Acland started a rival private ferry and although it lasted only until December he had weakened the more expensive public service.

Acland supported the New Holland scheme and in the Magna Charta started three round trips a day with an additional crossing on market days. A horse boat was added for animal transportation. There had already been principal services to Boston, Lincoln and Nottingham although with good turnpikes available, freight traffic stayed on the waterways until the coming of the railway.

The Great Grimsby and Sheffield Junction railway were the first to propose a line to New Holland but before their plans came to fruition they had amalgamated with the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway later to become the Great Central. From the beginning, the trains went along the feet long New Holland pier built by John Fowler, it had two tracks, a carriageway and a footpath and a year later passengers disembarked on to the floating pontoon that eased the passage on to the ferries.

Goods now transferred from waterways to the railways and passengers and mail came from the stage coaches. In the same year , a Bill was proposed which could have had far-reaching consequences for railways in the area.

This provided for a tunnel under the Humber, connecting with the railway lines on both the north and south banks. Although passed by the House of Commons, the Bill was rejected by the Lords. On 1st March a branch opened from a junction south of New Holland Town Station to Barton on Humber and in a branch opened from Goxhill one station south of New Holland to Immingham Dock, both branches were provided with a service from New Holland.

The initial service to and from New Holland consisted of five trains daily in each direction, with two each way on Sundays. New Holland was busy, although it was never the major railway junction that some had foreseen. There was a suggestion of building custom facilities, which would have been a curious development given the smuggling origins of the place.

In the railway company built a school for the railway children, in it opened a three acre dock and timber yard, warehouses, cattle sheds and coal wharves, in a rebuilt Yarborough Arms was opened.

The schoolroom was licensed by the Bishop of Lincoln for services and the church was opened in If New Holland began with smuggling and the railway was born in corruption, the railway operation was no better when the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway fell out with the Great Northern Railway which ran services from Louth. Also the library in New Holland was financed by fines on railway employees. New Holland was a railway community, the majority of the 80 house being built by the company to house its workers.

In the original wooden pier was replaced by the present pier the three earlier vessels used on the service across the Humber were replaced by the three paddle-steamers Wingfleld Castle, Tattershall Castle, and Lincoln Castle between and , these were built to take passengers and cars and a car ramp was provided at the end of the pier to drive cars down to the ferries.

With the building of the Humber Bridge and the closure of the Humber Ferry the closure of the station at New Holland Pier came as no surprise. In mid, therefore, British Railways Board gave advance notice of its intention to discontinue the service to New Holland Pier Station from the date of opening of the bridge including the withdrawal of passenger train services between New Holland Pier and Barrow Road Junction, and between New Holland Junction and Barton Junction.

The Barton on Humber branch was closed on 1st June and with the opening of the Humber Bridge on 24th June , New Holland Pier and New Holland Town stations closed at noon on the same day being replaced by a new wooden halt on the Barton branch which was actually slightly close to New Holland village. The Barton on Humber branch reopened at the same time with a new bus service taking passengers across the bridge from Barton. After closure New Holland Pier was taken over by New Holland Bulk Services, who started a grain and animal food import and export business in New Holland Bulk Services is still rail connected although rarely used, the Barrow Road signalbox to the south of the station still stands.

Before closure of the line there was still a regular service, the last BR timetable showed ten trains daily in each direction to Grimsby, with four rising to six in summer on Sundays. Normal journey time for the l6 miles from Grimsby to New Holland Pier was just under 40 minutes. The ferry service,across the last great waterway in Britain to be bridged, took an additional twenty minutes. Railway Magazine, October and New Holland: Tickets from Michael Stewart.
