North Yorkshire Moors Railway 4/7

So it’s departure time for the Moors Explorer behind Black 5 No.45428 Eric Treacy from Grosmont on its way through the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors and the Newtondale Gorge to Pickering. I must admit this viewing point at Grosmont is very well placed for photographs.

This is an Ooooooooooooo! kind of a picture, Brian, and I cannot stop my arms from making push-rod motions!
Brian Walbey: Just like lads used to do in the school playground I guess Ray, did your lad wonder what his Dad was up to smile
This picture makes you return to the past ... It seems that at any moment they will get off the train Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson!

Saludos Brian!
Brian Walbey: I think they might have been standing on the platform behind the train Eduardo smile smile

One day I must return here Brian: I remember it as a wonderful railway
Brian Walbey: It is a good railway and a nice journey Chris, there is so much more to do in North Yorkshire as well, although it is quite a long journey for you isn't it.
Cripes .. 'this is a I must return to' spot.
Brian Walbey: And why not Richard, and take in all the other delights of North Yorkshire as well.
I wonder how it would look in some selective coloring, great I think
Brian Walbey: I might give that a go and just pick out the reds Chantal.

And they're off. First out of the tracks is Moors Explorer hugging the inside rail as he comes up to Level Crossing.
Brian Walbey: He's left the rest of the field well behind Chad.
Old 45428 is on the track Brian with the smoke belching and the steam hissing... i love old steam engines... i was born and raised in a house beside a railway yard until i turned 21.. my grandfather was the General Yardmaster for the CPR and my father took over the house when he retired....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Sounds like you had a great place to live as a youngster Peter.

A fine shot Brian, the moments of expectation are over and wonderment reigns! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, it really is a good spot for shots like this.
As I said yesterday must try and get out to these places.Great spot to capture him.

If we get up there I'll let you know When.
Brian Walbey: It is a good spot for pictures like this and worth a visit.
A fine sight, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Tom.

This takes you back in time, it is really lovely Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda, some of us big boys never grow up when we see things like this.
Off it goes Brian. Superb capture!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
Good locomotive in an appropriate looking setting.
Brian Walbey: Indeed John, it could be any time in the 50's or 60's quite easily.

You know, Brian - these engines are beginning to grow on me!
Brian Walbey: You wouldn't be the first lady on SC who is charmed by these old engines some of us show Lisl.
Absolutely classic Brian, these really are enjoyable! Thanks for sharing this series.
Brian Walbey: A pleasure Neil, I have two more train series set up over the next couple of months.

Another cracking shot choc full interest even for a narrow gauge fan such as myself. Little to date this; it could be from the good old days of steam. Although not a great fan of b&w, I bet this would make a superb b&w shot to add to the timeless appeal.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. I have tried what Chantal suggested and colour-popped all the red and made the rest B.& W., looks quite good, I might post it sometime.
It is a great spot. Well captured.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Rob.
That is one railway journey I would love to take, Brian. Does it run the year round?
Brian Walbey: It is a journey through some lovely moorland scenery Beverly including a long gorge in which there are no roads at all. It runs all year round but of course not so much in the middle of winter.
