Staithes Railway Station

Here on Staithes station locomotive L1 2-6-4T number 67754 stands adjacent to the signal box with a mixed train of 2nd/3rd class composite coaches, the first carriage being quite a modern example, while the rest are pre-1939. Eric Johnson has advised: “Engine no 67754 was in charge of the last passenger train from Whitby to Loftus, in 1958. on the left of the photograph (behind the boys on the platform) can be seen a camping coach, several of the stations between Staithes and Scarborough had these carriages in sidings at the stations, for holiday makers.” The old station building still stands, it is now a private house, but still is an obvious former railway building.
