Embsay Signal Box

I was pottering around Embsay station on the Yorkshire Dales Railway near Skipton with my camera when David Dyson the signalman approached and we got chatting.

It didn’t take much persuading for him to invite me into the box, and then snap happy smith was in his element!

If you have visited here before you will know that I like steam trains and there are plenty to choose from in the UK. This one is in the Yorkshire Dales near Skipton.

Over the past few days I have been going through my old black and white negatives and scanning a few of the better ones and some of these are of puffing billies. They will appear in forthcoming posts. Sorry!

Can’t have too much of a good thing!

While visiting the Yorkshire Dales Railway near Skipton, I took a number of environmental portraits of the volunteers who work on the line and this picture was taken on the platform at Bolton Abbey station before taking the train back to Embsay.
