Royal Scot

The steam locomotive Royal Scot is prepared at Grosmont engine sheds ahead of running between Grosmont and Pickering on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway on March 25, 2017 in Grosmont, United Kingdom.

Built in 1927 Royal Scot will run on the heritage line for a week to mark 50 years since the formation of the charitable trust. I visited the engine sheds this morning at 04.30 to join the support crew volunteers as they lit the fire to build up the pressure, carried out routing maintenance and prepared the locomotive for the day.

The North York Moors historical railway trust is a not-for profit charitable organisation run as part of the local community. Its trains operate between Pickering and Whitby and provide an authentic railway experience for thousands of visitors each season.
