This was my first visit to the NYMR.

Our train was hauled by Southern 825

Nice shots Ian, I'm surprised it's only your first visit! :-o

I had to do quite a bit of haggling to get there at all!! ;)

Mrs Mod is not, and never has been, a steam railway fan. So we went shopping for the next three days. :( When I say shopping I really mean traipsing round 'looking' at things in shops. ~x(

We did the NYM trip last year - well worth the visit!

Trade her in for a newer model, or at least let her think you will! ;)

That should keep her in line! :D

Thank you for the pics Ian. Another lovely Preserved Railway, the NYMR. Plus there is the Main Line connection to Whitby. Great shots. Nice ones of 825 (one of the Class S15 Locos).
