While the main aim of my trip to Yorkshire was to see the Flying Scotsman, I enjoyed seeing the regular traffic on the North York Moors railway.
The 18 mile heritage railway runs from Pickering to Grosmont through a beautiful scenery which I had not expected.
Along the route we stopped at Levisham and Goathland stations, the latter being famous for TV and film appearances as Aidensfield and Hogsmeade.
I look forward to visiting the area again in the future to visit locations which I did not fit into my tight schedule.
