144009 North Rigton 6 September 2004

144009 passes North Rigton on the Leeds to Harrogate line with the 07:10 Leeds to York service on 6 September 2004. The soft autumnal sun was just burning off the mist, which can still be seen lingering in the background. The 39 miles between Leeds and York is possibly about the furthest you'd want to travel in one of these railbuses. Lively is possibly the kindest description of quality of their ride, with a very basic bus like accommodation. At least they were cheap!
