The North Yorkshire Railway is one of the earliest and most historic lines in the North of England and its origins go back well over a century when its completion in 1836 created an important trade link between Whitby and Pickering and onwards to the rest of the country. The Preservation Society today operates services along an 18 mile line between the village of Grosmont, located just 6 miles from the fishing port of Whitby, and the market town of the most dramatic scenery in Britain. The line is a major tourist attraction carrying around 300,000 passengers a year and the olde worlde charm of the line’s country stations together with the remote unspoilt scenery has provided locations for much film and television work. The hugely popular television series ‘Heartbeat’ and the blockbuster ‘Harry Potter’ motion pictures being just two examples. Mike Heath has been visiting and photographing the railway for over fifteen years recording all aspects of the line, day and night, across all four seasons. Here he takes us on a photographic journey along the route. Highlighting the diversity of the landscape through which it passes, the effect that the changing seasons and weather have on it and the various special events held there, which all combine to illustrate the reasons why the railway can rightly boast to being the most popular heritage railway in the country.
