What did the officials say?

Chris Price, General Manager at NYMR, said:

‘It’s always a fantastic occasion when we kick start the season with a guest engine and we very much look forward to welcoming both heritage rail enthusiasts and families to ride behind such a unique locomotive. Also, visitors can get a real taste of railway life by tuning in to the second series of ‘The Yorkshire Steam Railway: All Aboard’, airing this Spring.

The first of the six-part documentary series sees the railway addressing the challenges of keeping trains operating through a National Park during a heatwave in the peak timetable. Locomotive 5428 Eric Treacy makes a return to traffic and Engine Shed Manager, Piglet, visits Erica the cat, after retiring from the Motive Power Depot after 15 years of service”.
