Join the staff and volunteers of Britain''s most popular Heritage Railway for a year on the line with the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. It''s eighteen miles of locomotive heaven, running through some of the most beautiful countryside in Britain. The line''salready familiar to millions through Heartbeat and Harry Potter-but now here''s a chance to meet the real people who run this wonderful railway, volunteers like the footplate crews who drive the heavy metal monsters up and down the hills of North Yorkshire. The Permanent Way Gangs who bust a gut on their day off-and the Catering Crew who run a restaurant on wheels. The cleaners who keep the trains spotless and the quiet craftsmen patiently preserving the past, restoring priceless coaches and engines.
Experience the Railway''s Wartime Weekend, hop on a Santa Special or join the kids crowding the stations to meet Thomas. Meet the volunteers working to bring the A4 locomotive Sir Nigel Gresley back to life-and meet the millionaire who collects steam engines for a hobby. With spectacular aerial photography Yorkshire Steam is a glorious celebration of beautiful scenery, memorable characters and an unforgettable railway.
