Photographer's Note

We started our steam train journey in the southern terminus of Pickering. The station takes us back to the 1930s although it originates from 1836 when it was called the Whitby and Pickering Railway engineered by George Stephenson. The line closed in 1965 (The infamous Dr. Beeching!) but was reopened in 1973 by the North York Moors Historical Trust. It is the most popular heritage railway in the UK. The 18-mile track runs to Grosmont where some engine sheds can be viewed. As you might expect the line attracts TV and film makers. Goatland Station was 'Hogsmeade Station' in Harry Potter films and the village was 'Aidensfield in the TV series 'Heartbeat'.

I took this picture in the rain while waiting for the steam engine to be coupled to the old carriages. A great day out through a glorious and very wet valley of the North York Moors.
