North Yorkshire Moors Railway 02 November 2012

The day started bright, sunny and cold as we first stopped at Moorgates on Goathland Moor to watch  Ex Southern Region Class S15 Maunsell heading for Goathland before 4-6-0 Black 5 45428 Eric Treacy is captured with The Moors Explorer heading for Pickering.

We then moved on to Grosmont to watch the arrivals and departures taking place in the early afternoon. Ex Southern Region Class S15 Maunsell was the first to depart this time heading towards Goathland and Pickering.

Next to leave was  Class 4MT 4-6-0 75029 The Green Knight with The Yorkshire Coast Express for Pickering. By now the weather had turned, the sun had disappeared replaced by drizzle.

We walked along to the engine sheds where 60007 Sir Nigel Gresley was more than likely being readied for its main line duties in a few days time.

We then ventured back to watch Black 5 45428 Eric Treacy departing once again heading for Goathland. By the time 45428 departed it was raining heavily so apologies for the extra shaky video as I attempted to give my camera some protection from the rain.

With the rain coming down we decided to head for home.

There's also a video of all these trains which can be found here.
