North Yorkshire Moors Railway 

Today's end of week video has been especially chosen for all you rail and steam enthusiasts. It is a rail journey on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, posted by David and it even features a cameo appearance by Thomas the Tank Engine.
The North Yorkshire Moors Heritage Railway runs through the heart of England's North Yorkshire Moors National Park, between Pickering, a busy market town and Grosmont, a genuine 1950s railway junction where you can take a break in the station cafe, visit the engine sheds and view steam locomotives under restoration. On route, trains call at Goathland village, which is the setting for the television series, Heartbeat and Levisham, which is known for a beautiful forest drive and walking trails.

Different timetables operate throughout the year but on many days it is possible to get a connection to the historic port of Whitby. there is a full autumn program in place and they are already taking bookings for 'Santa Specials'. Enthusiast may be interested to know that the North Yorkshire Moors Railway Heritage Society also run various 'Footplate Courses'.

This video runs for nearly eight minutes, so on a slow connection you may need to click play and then leave it to download for ten minutes before clicking replay, in order to obtain uninterrupted viewing.
