Ventured south to darkest Englandshire this week and took a trip on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway from Pickering to Whitby and back. If you are ever down this way, do it; it runs through some really beautiful scenery and Whitby itself is well work a visit.

These first three photograph show Pickering station assuming the trappings of WW2 for a 1940s commemorative weekend that was coming up.

Another three photos. The first shows locomotive 61264, an LNER B1 Thompson Class, arriving at Pickering to take our train out to Whitby. Next is our return train hauled by locomotive 76084 arriving at Whitby to take us back to Pickering. Unfortunately, it didn't make it - it was running out of water and coal by the time it reached Grosmont and had to be replaced by another engine. The third picture shows it shunted on to a siding in disgrace while we waited forty five minutes for its replacement to arrive.

PS I've no doubt that Paul Hunter will be able to add to the locomotive information.
