Description

This is one of many films made by amateur filmmaker John (Jack) E Dyson of Leeds.  This is a family trip out on the North York Moors Railway and to Filey.  

The film begins with a woman and two boys out flying a kite.  

People are waiting on the platform at Goathland Railway Station watching as the ‘The Scarborough Flyer’ (Loco. ‘George Stephenson’, 4767) arrives.  There is brief film of a ride on the train taken from the window, and then the train is filmed from various places on route and stopping at Levisham Station.  

The last section of the film is taken on the beach at Filey, with the two boys racing into the sea.  They are then in canoes and a later in a motorboat on a boating lake.  Then film finishes with an air show and the Red Arrows flying overhead.
