    I envy you your location, Harry. I’m a hop, skip and a jump from a railway line myself, but Southeastern’s EMUs don’t hold the same allure! I had heard about the NYMR reaching Whitby. I’m hoping to see similar scenes on our “local” heritage line, the Bluebell in Sussex, which has just been re-connected to the main line.

    Lovely shots there, Harry. The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is on my list of lines to explore.

    • Hello Mike – The shots were taken less than a mile from my back door. It is on the main line to Middlesbrough – the Moors railway now has permission to use this section so that its engines can now reach Whitby from Pickering. Previously they terminated at Grosmont.
