Actually taken about 20 minutes after the Southern 825 in my last upload had pulled out of the station, so they would have a bit of a wait, as the trains are one every hour! It is such a beautifully kept station, however, that’s it’s a pleasure just to sit and enjoy it on a sunny day, even if not waiting for a train. What a pity all railway stations are not like this one at Goathland.
If anyone has watched ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’, which was on TV yesterday evening, the observant ones amongst you will recognise this station (from V1 & V3) as being the location used for the final scene in the film as they were departing Hogwarts on the train. Visitors here may be disappointed, however, not to find the Hogwarts building tucked away behind the tall tree on the left in V3 which can be seen at the very end of the scene as the camera pans upwards!

Made me laugh. I remember taking a little Russian girl to Alnwick Castle, because the courtyard was used as the location for the Quidditch games. She was thrilled - but then we went inside the castle and it didn't look anything like Hogwarts, she burst into tears!
Lovely set, Yorkshire at her best.

Hi Trev
Stunning photography again mate, your processing skills are second to none, Harry Potter films have a lot of filming done in Henry Fox Talbots house Lacock Abbey, this is the school, for the people who do not know, Henry Fox Talbot is the father of photography inventing the calotype process.

Set in a perfect rural situation, this station smacks of times past and a way of life long gone, by and large. Look beautifully maintained as evidence by your excellent images, Trev, with my favourite V 3 with that attractive rd bridge framing the further scene.

Your processing is always a pleasure to see, Trev, but these three are even better than usual. Like these "All Our Yesterdays" images a lot.

What a lovely set Trev, I must admit I didn't recognise it from Harry Potter and I've seen them all. As you say it is a beautifully kept station and you have shown this in these images.
