The Night Train conjures up immediately that wonderful smell of smoke and steam that only a steam train can produce.
Goathland Station, the setting for so many of Yorkshire TV`s “Heartbeat” story lines makes a perfect setting for this timeless nocturne study by John Freeman.
The study is set in the days when the railways provided a vital link between the moorland villages and the “outer world”, not only moving people but also milk, post, light freight and the daily papers.
To this day the station still has the furnishings and architecture of the classic village railway station, now lovingly cared for by the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
It is now a mecca for for both Heartbeat and railway enthusiasts alike.
Enjoy being taken back to a time when the train was a vital part of rural life, smell the smoke and hear the distinctive shrill of the guards whistle.
