The evening sun has slipped away, lending strange hues to the returning 'Scarborough Spa Express'. But for a signal check, this photograph would have been impossible. About half a mile in front of the train, a Selby to Leeds diesel unit has the road at Micklefield Junction. Shortly afterward, Leander made a sure-footed start, the progress of her onward journey could be heard for several minutes in the still and humid evening air. Delicious!
