Now, retired Scarborough museum worker and amateur local historian Robin Lidster has done lovers of all things to do with the railways a huge favour by gathering together a unique collection of historic photographs, which show the line in its glory days. There are some stunning photographs in Robin's book: from a locomotive standing silhouetted at the entrance to the Gallows Close tunnel in Scarborough to a shot of a steam locomotive struggling up the steep 1 in 39 gradient to Ravenscar.
There are wonderful photographs, too, of many of the eight stations along the route, each with their own individual character. The book starts at Scarborough, and through the course of 94 pages and photographs, old and new, takes the reader along the complete route, finishing at Whitby Town Station.
Goodreads is the world's largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. The descent continues through woodland, crossing several deep valleys on large embankments, before the site of Fyling Hall station is reached. An hour and a half going back in time travelling on an old steam train. Next you must pass along Chichester Close before turning right onto Station Road. Insured Delivery. Luckily on the two times I have done this journey there have been plenty of seats.
