Staithes Viaduct again

Staithes Viaduct with a local commuter train, powered by a British Railways “Standard” tank engine. This photograph was probably taken towards the end of the line’s existence, a two carriage train indicating the decline of rail traffic as increased fares and better road links caused migration away from the railways. Simon Chapman advised: “All that remains now are the concrete piers that supported the steelwork. In view is the stone abutment which supported the west end. The east end abutment; also of stone was demolished”.
