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!
