Nostalgia: Scalby Mills Station, North Bay Railway

editorial image

Scalby Mills Station on the North Bay Railway has seen many developments since the railway was built in 1930-31.

Just visible in the centre of the picture behind the white Scalby Mills sign is the stonework of a tunnel exit. The locomotives used the tunnel as a means of turning round for the return journey to Peasholm. In later years the tunnel was cleared away and turning circle created.
