16/17 June 2016
We’d were staying nearby, quite coincidentally - could we squeeze in a visit? At this time of year, trains run on the Wensleydale Railway at weekends (including Friday) and Wednesdays. Our time was spoken for on Wednesday, and there wouldn’t be time for a ride on Friday - we’d be heading south. There would have been time for a quick visit on Wednesday morning, but there seemed no need. However, when we looked
in at Leeming Bar station (the line’s HQ) on a very dull Thursday evening, we discovered that 69023, the NER-designed J72, had been operating a trial steam service, at short notice, in place of the DMU. Oh dear! Can’t win them all, I suppose. A trip to Bedale on Friday morning to see the DMU (classes 121 and 117 - three cars and three different liveries!) will have to suffice for now...
