North York Moors


Some photos from The North York Moors Railway plus a few of Whitby, taken in June 2012, on one of the very few days that year when the sun actually came out.

Veteran class 24 locomotive D5061 at Pickering having just brought the first train of the day down from Whitby. This locomotive is almost as old as many of the BR Standard steam locomotives on the railway,

They’re not all of kettles; quite a few are of the veteran Class 24 D5061, which is probably as old as the 9F

The long-disused viaduct that once carried the Middlesborough to Scarborough coast line across the Esk at Whitby.

I do like this shot, taken from the train window, of the long-disused viaduct that once carried the coast line between Middlesborough and Scarborough across the Esk just outside Whitby.


And finally, the ruins of Whitby Abbey, taken at sunset, after first taking precautions against being bitten by goths.

    Kettles/Keats, I see, must read twitter more carefully instead of wishfully.
