The Railway – This historic miniature railway in Yorkshire is celebrating its 84th year of operation.
I have fond memories of travelling on it as a child and when I revisited Scarborough a couple of weeks ago, my (adult) son and I went for a ride.
The locomotives – Neptune, Triton and Poseidon have a 4.6.2 wheel arrangement while Robin Hood (Number 570) has a 4-6-4T configuration.

“Among finds dating back about 3,000 years, a Bronze Age sword, thought to have been a ritual offering, is on display in the castle exhibition.”
