The North Bay Railway Company Ltd, a sister company to the Cleethorpes
Coast Light Railway,
took over the operation of the railway from the local Council in December 2007, initially on a short term lease.
The new company brought in two "new to Scarborough" locomotives and
started running on winter weekends.
This is the first time in the railways 75 year history that trains have run in the winter and they proved very popular.
The two new locomotives, brought to Scarborough by the new operators, are on left of photo.
"Poseidon" is identical to the Scarborough locos also having been built by Hudswell Clarke.
It is seen here being cleaned by Michael Shaw the CCLRs expert painter .
The second "new" loco is also a Hudswell Clarke product named "Robin Hood".
This tank locomotive has previously seen service in Leeds.
Locos are carefully positioned for a Press photo shoot.
