Steam at Pickering

Steam at Pickering

We had driven north from Sheffield in Yorkshire and stopped off in York to visit the National Railway Museum. (Some photos to come)

We were heading for Northallerton where the intention was to undertake some further family history research at the county archive. After leaving York we stopped briefly at Pickering where I was fortunate to capture this working steam locomotive on its arrival from Whitby via the North York Moors Railway line. The unexpected is almost always more exciting and although I had enjoyed the NRM, there’s nothing quite like seeing a steam engine actually alive, breathing smoke and leaking steam.
