North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway Autumn Gala

North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway bills no less than NINE engines for their Autumn Steam Gala between September 30 and October 2.

Locomotive Changes for The NYMR Autumn Gala

Circumstances have caused some changes to the guest locos for this event. A4 No. 4492 Dominion of New Zealand (a.k.a. No. 60019 Bittern – and without the second tender) should be present – with an arrangement for it to remain at the NYMR for the official opening of the new overall roof at Pickering station by HRH The Duke of Gloucester KG, GCVO on October 4 and the NYMR’s October 14-16 ‘The Railway in Wartime’ event. This could be subject to other main line commitments.

Iconic Engine Missing

The NYMR had expected No. 3717 City of Truro to visit, but the NRM’s iconic loco failed during a spell at the Bodmin & Wenford Railway in early September. In a late arrangement, its place has been taken by GWR 4-6-0 No. 7822 Foxcote Manor from the Llangollen Railway. This seems to be the first time a ‘Manor’ has ever visited the Moors Line.

NYMR-based locos expected to be in action encompass SR S15 No. 825, ‘Black Five’ No. 44767 George Stephenson, ‘Black Five’ No. 45428 Eric Treacy, LNWR ‘Super D’ No. 49395, LNER Q6 No. 63395, 9F 2-10-0 No. 92214 Cock O’ The North and, provided its overhaul is completed in time, 4MT 4-6-0 No. 75029 (named The Green Knight when previously owned by David Shepherd) which has been out of action since its boiler was lifted in early 2010.

The NYMR runs trains on the Esk Valley line, principally to Whitby, but the gala Sunday will also see steam-hauled trains running to Battersby.
