A visit to the Yorkshire Wolds Railway  4th April 2014

Whilst on a visit to Robin Hoods Bay in North Yorkshire we stopped off at the Fimber Picnic Site for a break and cuppa break and a chance to see the Yorkshire Wolds Railway site.

DoncasterWx weather

Effectively the end of the line at the moment. To the right the rolling stock on site so far. A carriage and the ex-Trackworks diesel diesel-hydraulic shunter, purchased from a site near Doncaster, has now been delivered to their site! The locomotive was built in 1979 by GEC Traction, a British company founded in 1972 but which could trace its lineage right back to Robert Stephenson & Co. GEC has since been subsumed into the French Alstom company. The locomotive spent some time at Lindholme Prison.

Once a busy line between Malton and Driffield as below sadly it met the axe in 1958 if you would like further information about the line past and present visit their excellent website

A visit to Robin Hoods Bay  4th April 2014

Sadly you can longer reach Robin Hoods Bay by train, the line fell victim to the prescription of a certain well known doctor who axed the scenic railway line between Whitby and Scarborough in 1964. The railway station is presently up for sale.
