With the approach of summer what better than a train journey to one of Britain’s classic seaside destinations, Scarborough. We shall follow our regular route through Derby to York. Shortly thereafter the train takes the scenic route through Malton before reaching our destination of Scarborough.
Scarborough is the original seaside resort, offering stunning scenery and glorious beaches with plenty to see and do. You can immerse yourself in history with Scarborough Castle and the Rotunda Museum of geology or venture down to the seafront to see the traditional amusement arcades, ice cream parlours, shellfish stalls and beach huts. If you are still hankering for rail travel there is Britain’s most historic seaside miniature railway, running for 3/4 mile through the North Bay at Scarborough, with spectacular views of Scarborough’s North Bay, historic headland & Scarborough Castle.
No. 46233 “Duchess of Sutherland” will take us all the way from Tyseley to Scarborough in the morning. In the afternoon, 46233 will take us back as far as Derby from where the train will be diesel hauled back to Tyseley.
Steam hauled by No. 46233 ‘Duchess of Sutherland’. Diesel hauled from Derby to Tyseley on the return only.
