1932 Beach 28 June 2008

Hudswell Clarke built 4-6-2 1932 Triton leaves the disused Beach station on Scarborough's North Bay Railway with the 13:45 Scalby Mills to Peasholm Park service on 28 June 2008. It has just crossed sister loco 1933 Poseidon working the 13:45 Peasholm Park to Scalby Mills train. Beach station has a strange history, having been built in 1931 along with the rest of the line, it was not used by passengers until the 1980s, when during the construction of the Sea Life Centre (the white buildings in the background) it became a temporary terminus. However, it has now been closed again, and is used purely as a passing point when the fifteen minute interval service is in operation.
