Description

Our train will be hauled by  Class 47 number 47773 with a Class 20 diesel on the rear of the train.

We depart from Tyseley Locomotive Works, via Tamworth, Burton upon Trent, Derby, Clay Cross and Pontefract Baghill to York where you may leave the train if you wish. After a short stop, we continue to the seaside town of Scarborough.

The ever-popular city of York has many attractions for the day visitor. Inside York’s three miles of city walls there is evidence of Roman, Viking and Medieval history, mixed with classic architecture from three centuries. Boat trips are available on the River Ouse, pre-book an open-top bus tour or simply browse around the medieval shopping streets of Stonegate and The Shambles.

Scarborough is the largest holiday resort on the Yorkshire coast and lies between 10 and 230ft above sea level. The older part of the town is situated around the harbour, the main tourist area with a sandy beach, cafes and entertainment facilities. Its rocky promontory supports the 11th century ruins of Scarborough Castle and divides the seafront into two bays. The North Bay miniature railway runs through Northstead Manor Gardens to the Sea Life Centre at Scalby Mills. The North Bay Railway has what is believed to be the oldest operational diesel-hydraulic locomotive in the world. Neptune was built in 1931 by Hudswell Clarke of Leeds and is appropriately numbered 1931. The Diving Belle statue located on the harbour represents the love people have for Scarborough.
