Watch the birdy

Over the weekend the North Yorkshire Moors Railway held a behind the scenes event – having been ‘behind the scenes’ in my, one time,  day job I don’t normally go in for these events. However, the weather was fine and a drive over the moors from Kildale to Levisham via Rosedale Abbey and Pickering is lovely on such a day; and we enjoyed a picnic lunch on the way.

One of the options available was to view the signal box at Levisham; and as I hadn’t visited Levisham for over 20 years – well, hey ho, here we are at Levisham. I took some photos of the signal box, the station, and the lamp room. I also took this photo,  the reflection in the window of the general waiting room on the down platform.

When I began to look at the photo on the computer screen I noticed something I hadn’t seen when looking through the viewfinder. So, instead of the usual photo of ‘steam’ action I thought I’d post this one and see if you can spot the oddity. The only thing which has been done is a crop, no fancy photoshopping, it’s wizzywig.

If you have enjoyed my blogs – I have written a book about my 60 years involvement with railways, from trainspotter, via steam age footplateman, to railway author and photographer, this is a link to it:
