The North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) is a heritage railway in North Yorkshire, England running through the North York Moors National Park. First opened in 1836 as the Whitby and Pickering Railway, the railway was planned in 1831 by George Stephenson as a means of opening up trade routes inland from the then important seaport of Whitby. The line closed in 1965 and was reopened in 1973 by the North York Moors Historical Railway Trust Ltd. The preserved line is now a significant tourist attraction and has been awarded many industry accolades.

If the date of the photo were 1924, I might have been less surprised!
A terrific shot and well worth resurrecting for our enjoyment!
Thank you, Doug!

Does this image represent a hand coloured picture postcard, Doug?
Anyhow, a "steamy" impression from the homeland of railways.

Thanks for the visit, much appreciated. I was trying to create a faded/soft vintage effect in keeping with the age of the locomotive, rather than the pin-sharp image produced by the cameras of today.

All the best, Doug

Yes! Timeless Doug. Was on this steam line myself a few years back, chuffing through grass fires caused by the actual steam train. Thanks for the upload.
