. The couple who put steam engines back on the tracks, Mrs Erika Salmon and Mr Tom Salmon. Mr Salmon is credited by the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) as being the " Father of the Railway".
He began the process of preserving the railway line in the 1960s, after Dr Richard Beechings announcement that line between Pickering and Whitby would be amongst 5,000 miles of track and 2,300 stations to be axed.
In 1967 Mr Salmon held the first meeting of the preservation society at the couples home, where others who attended remembered how his determination to restore the branch won over the doubters. By then the line had been closed for two years and they had to prevent British Rail lifting the track. Within six years of the meeting, the line reopened and is now one the most popular heritage routes in the world, carrying about 350,000 passengers during the 260 days of the year it is open and employing about 100 full-time, paid staff and hundreds of volunteers.
. General Manager and Director of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway Mr Chris Price has also been added.
Finally we have recieved the long awaited No.29 Lambton Tank.
