What does "Scarborough Fashion" mean ?

Recommended Posts

I am reading an old RM article written by the Rev W Audrey where he describing the operation of one of his model railway layouts. He uses the phrase "Scarborough Fashion" and I get the feeling he is talking about something on the real railways rather than something in one of his stories.

 

He says ...

 

(The loco) has crept from the quarry line and backed to the passenger platform, Scarborough Fashion.

 

Does anyone know what the phrase refers to ?

Wasn't it something to do with the excursion platforms, which IIRC were actually at Falsgrave, just beyond Scarborough - inland of course.

 

In light of what Flying Pig posted (at same time) - dismiss the above as the ramblings of a lunatic.

That was Londesborough Road station, between Central and the shed, empty trains would be kept at the sidings on the Whitby line and would run through the tunnel and into the platform in a near continuous procession so no reversing.

Trains were authorised to propel between Whitby Town and Whitby West Cliff and into Scarborough station provided the train was comprised of no more than four bogie vehicles with a brake van outermost in which the Guard must ride and the train must not exceed 10 mph.

 

(LNER Sectional appendix)

 

It was also authorised for up to 7 vehicles at Guisborough.
