A Reminder of Summer

A steam train runs between Scarborough and York during the summer months. It stops to take on water here at Bootham Park Hospital as York Station does not have the ability to service steam trains any more. In the late 19th century the resident engineer for the Scarborough line was one Alfred Dickens, he was often visited in York by his elder brother Charles.


  1. Ah the romance of steam. I have never traveled on the York to Scarborough line, but if I ever do this is the way to do it.

  2. Great train shot and cool historical link to Dickens.
