Ryedale Scenes in North Yorkshire
Pickering Part 5. Railway scenes - Pickering Station, goods shed! and a diesel-steam trip on the NYMR
(1) Pickering Station and Locomotives
Pickering station is the southern terminus of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (restored to 1937 heritage status condition, here still without the new roof!). From it you can travel for 18 miles to Goathland through the most beautiful scenic moorland country and even on into Whitby. A must for any tourist-visitor staying in the area. At the time of the photograph (Feb. 2007) there was much painting of the station and cleaning up the carriages ready for the visiting tourists. The puffs of smoke will be seen from March 11th.
