North Yorkshire Moors Railway 7/7

To finish this series a view looking towards Whitby and this time another B.R.Standard Class 4 No.76079, like yesterdays engine but with a tender, awaits departure at the head of our train.

 

No 76079 was built at the Horwich works of the former Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway in February 1957 and entered service with the London Midland region at Sutton Oak shed. No 76079 is now owned by Riley and Son(e) Ltd, where it is fully restored and mainline registered. It is a busy engine, regularly performing on the "Whitby En devour" for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, as well as other charters up and down the country.


IN the distance you can see the rake of Gresley coaches I included on my picture from the train window on Tuesday.

Nice, dramatic shot, Brian.

Best of all, though, is the reflection off the boiler cover.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
I continue to enjoy your train pix Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn.
Ilike the POV
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
Hi Brian, still taking wonderful pictures I see. Lots to look at in this one - from the miniature landscape in the top left, to the wonderful reflections in the train. Marvellous! (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much indeed Ros.
One of these days I will go here again Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is worth the journey to get there Bill, a great train ride altogether.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.
Say hello good bye... Lovely captured Brian!

you can't beat a good steam train pic - I must take another trip on the NY Moors track sometime soon
Brian Walbey: I couldn't agree more Paul, it is a lovely ride, especially now it goes right through to Whitby.
Going backwards for Christmas?
Brian Walbey: On the older engines it is not a great experience to go backwards, the older ones had virtually no rear of the cab protection at all, think of that at night in pouring rain and freezing cold.

These Standard 4s were quite common on the Southern: good performers
Brian Walbey: Strangely we never saw much of them round my way at the tome, Hertfordshire/Cambridgeshire border area as far as I can recall.

I have really enjoyed seeing your photos of the North Yorkshire Railway. It ia an area I have visited often over the years.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much, perhaps you might feel tempted to go back again.

This is the loco that pulled my train on New year's Day. So that's what she looks like when it's not raining. I like the reflections in the windows.

I've enjoyed this series.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, these were fine workhorses.
I'm now itching to go there again, Brian. I particularly like this composition.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Neil. If you live in the London area as I suspect you do then a blast up the A1 will get you there in no time.
