The Humber Commercial Railway (HCR) was a double track section linking Humber Road Junction at Immingham with a junction on the New Holland line at Ulceby, opened for goods traffic in 1910.

Apart from some special boat trains between the World Wars, no regular passenger service ever operated over this stretch until the workmen's service.

This railway enabled direct links to the north and midlands to be made from Immingham and enjoys considerable use today.

Humber Road Junction provided the links to the commercial and dock sidings, GDLR and Immingham West Junction. This West Junction provided the links with the dock station and the route to New Holland.
