A Northern Rail class 155 crossing the famous viaduct at Knaresborough.

The famous viaduct at Knaresborough in North Yorkshire, built in 1851 to carry the line from York to Harrogate. At first glance you might think the train is a pair of class 153s, but it’s not. It’s one of the seven class 155s originally sponsored by West Yorkshire PTE, which were never split and converted into single-car units.

Although it now carries only local traffic, Knaresborough sees a surprising variety of trains; in the space of a few hours I saw class 142 and 143 Pacers, and class 150, 153 and 155 Sprinters.
