What a glorious sight

It just shows that sometimes the old technology works a lot better than what we have today and certainly steam trains are so much more fun

I'd happily brave the snow to travel on a real train Very Happy

Viewers of "Heartbeat" will of course recognise the railway and its rolling stock - it stops at Goathland (aka "Aidensfield") on its route between Pickering and Grosmont. It's wonderful to watch the train cutting its way through the North Yorks Moorland - I love it.

I know this railway very well. Trains run between Pickering and Whitby in the summer now though Colin.
