Visitors 4464 (a.k.a ‘Bittern’), 80072 and 70000 (a.k.a ‘Britannia’) join local locomotives, including 75029, 69023 and 92214 (a.k.a ‘The Green Knight’, ‘Joem’ and ‘Cock O’ The North’), to entertain.

Highlights of the weekend include runs along the Esk Valley Line to Battersby on both Sundays (6th May and 13th May), Local trains running the Grosmont to Goathland line and demos of goods trains working on Sat 5th, Mon 7th, Fri 11th and Sat 12th.

During the Gala There will be five sets of carriages working. The line to Whitby will be worked by two sets of Mark 1 BR carriages from the 1950s, while a third set will work the line between between Pickering and Grosmont. The LNER Coach Association will be showing some superb 1930s teak vehicles, beautifully finished in varnish as opposed to being painted. Last but certainly not least is the Pullman dining train, which features Car 79, built for the LNER “Queen of Scots” service back in 1928 (this was an all-Pullman service).
