Photographer's Note

I couldn't think of a very original title so used a descriptive one. The picture shows the buffers and coupling system on a steam train at Pickering Station on the North York Moors railway.

The station originates from 1836 when it was called the Whitby and Pickering Railway engineered by George Stephenson. The line closed in 1965 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'.

As you might imagine I did not take this photo beacuse I am particularly interested in coupling systems but rather because I like the black and red and the effect of the steam.
