They're keen:

Come with bags, perhaps they are camping out to be on the first train :D

 

However, I can see that the Thompson coach and it's train have been placed there since 14th May so some activity underway ahead of re-opening.

I haven't noticed many people at Grosmont. However a bloke just walked down the platform whilst I was posting this. Looked like an enthusiast rather than a random tourist.

 

On the Ffestiniog webcam I've seen quite a few sitting on the platform benches at Porthmadog. Especially when the sun was out.

 

Looks nicely kept still.

Last train from Whitby was diesel hauled to Gromont by the Green 25, came off to be replaced by 825.

 

Whilst they were coupling up 825, Repton appeared, I presume from Pickering as it departed back towards the shed at the same time as 825 got under way.

Repton had just returned from Pickering after dropping the coaches off.

If The Optimist is running with 825 or the 9F it's being swapped with Sybillia at Grosmont for the Whitby section.

 

I think its just 825 and 926 this week on The Optimist - the 9F was in the running shed today having a bit of TLC.

It's the B1 K1, now back from Whitby. 825 also pottering around the station. A few members of the public around, and 4 or 5 people seemed to get off the train...

They will be running a ghost service, drivers will need a route refresh (especially on the NR side), guards and volunteers will have to practice how the trains will operate.

 

Did the same thing in the summer when they were last allowed to run.

That would explain why they're just doing Grosmont-Whitby - two (possibly three) trips so far today.

I think they tend to do crew changes at Grosmont, so they may have a small group of NR competent drivers for the Whitby route and a wider group of heritage drivers for the rest of the route.
