One of the special charter trains that West Coast Railways operate is THE SCARBOROUGH SPA EXPRESS, usually hauled by steam locomotives BUT diesel power is sometimes deployed if there is a significant fire risk.
The route usually uses a loop from York to York via Wakefield, Castleford, Normanton Leeds and then onto Scarborough and return to York.
Between Danby and Castleton Moor on the Esk Valley Line, a pair of Class 57 diesels 'top and tail' the return trip of the "Esk Valley Pullman" (Spirit of the Lakes) organised by West Coast Rail Tours (West Coast Railway Company) on Friday April 7th 2017.
