Pickering Trains

One of the highlights of Pickering is that it is the first (or last) stop of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway - we took the train in 2012 with my parents (you can see photos here) and I loved the old steam trains then - so getting to see even more and take photos in Pickering again was very exciting, even if we didn't go on the train this time.  

The accommodation we stayed in at Pickering - High Mill - which we highly recommend - was right next to the train line, so we got to watch the trains arrive and leave and wave at all the happy people going by. I loved it.

North Yorkshire Moors Railway

We didn't really plan much for our week away but the one thing I was excited about was going on a steam train and we weren't disappointed. It felt a little bit like we were on Hogwarts Express which I loved and there was so much to see and to hear, the whistle in particular made me smile everytime.

This is my first roll of Kodak Ektar and I think I'm smitten, the red tones are just stunning and I love how they completely suit the subject. I probably should have used a faster speed film for the inside shots as they are just a little bit blurry (although that could have been the train moving too thinking too) but I would happily use this film over and over again.
