In this programme, some of North Yorkshire's long lost branch lines are looked at, the main feature being a ride on the daily pick-up goods train from Malton to Whitby on the 16th March 1965.

We begin by following a Class J27 freight locomotive on the last operational pick-up goods from Malton to Kirbymoorside via Gilling on Friday 7th August 1964. The line from Pilmoor Junction on the East Coast Main Line to Gilling is shown, with a Class B1 on a passenger train at Coxwold.

Joining the pick-up goods once more at Malton, on this occasion hauked by a Class B1 locomotive, we travel on a glorious winter's day to Whitby, over what is now the North York Moors Railway.

The final journey is a ride on a diesel multiple unit stopping train from Whitby to Scarborough down the much-missed coast line through Robin Hoods Bay. A look at passenger and freight operations in Scarborough concludes the programme.

Filmed and recorded between 1962 and 1966.
