“Lady Jill” here again, hoping to be slightly more generous than last week!

For many people the holiday season is now over for a few months, though ‘St Luke’s little summer’ in mid-October can offer a very pleasant addition to the main event. On the whole we tend to prefer several short breaks of about five days, getting to know parts of Britain we haven’t seen before but often returning to North Yorkshire, where the coast is wild and beautiful and the moors are a carpet of purple heather in the late summer.

My husband would probably describe himself as a railway geek, and most of our holidays involve trains in some way: riding on preserved lines, pottering around transport museums, visiting the site of former stations. On the principle of “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em”, I’ve enjoyed exploring some interesting out-of-the-way spots such as Arley on the Severn Valley line, County School station on the Mid-Norfolk railway and Levisham on the North York Moors. As for the ‘romance of steam’, who can forget the charm of leaning out of a carriage window (opened by letting down a strap, of course) only for a speck of soot to embed itself under one’s eyelid?… yet there are few finer sights than a steam train crossing the Ribblehead or Glenfinnan viaducts, and the sound of a steam whistle in the distance can still stir the soul.
