NYMR’s 76079 Steam Locomotive at Whitby Station (6th July 2018)

I took this footage on the morning of 6th July 2018 while trudging back from capturing footage from the Cook 250 Event going on in the town the same morning.

I only really caught a very short clip of video footage as the locomotive wasn’t really doing much other than sitting at the platform producing steam, but I also caught some fairly decent still images I was able to drop into this video to help pad it out a bit.

After months of putting off the edit and upload due to various interruptions popping up, I’m afraid this was the best I could cobble together with the footage……

They were taken on my trusty old Panasonic HDC-SD800 camcorder, with very little sleep and a head full of ideas after watching a few YouTube vids about how to take arty-farty footage to try refresh my skills and get my mojo back for shooting video clips, and maybe having another stab with stock photography too.

For the benefit of those not familiar with old locomotives like this, Steam Locomotive 76079 is a BR Standard 4MT 2-6-0, built in 1957 at Horwich, and retired from use in 1967.
