The Esk Valley Line: Middlesbrough to Whitby railway line. What made me think of it? Probably my recent article on Edale, with a train chugging through the place. And also a train ticket that I found in my scrapbook when I was flicking through this morning.
Whitby is a delightful, picturesque place. The fish and chips, the sticky seaside rock, the stroll along the promenade, the Goth weekend, and much, much more. Like Kaiserswerth near Düsseldorf, it’s a place you can visit any day of the year. And people do.
But don’t forget. It’s not just Whitby that is the destination. The railway line itself is a good destination. Breathtaking views of the North York Moors, rolling hills, Battersby (Junction) train station, Grosmont station with its steam trains.
A picture describes a thousand words…
Have an Esk-citing day, won’t you!
