Scarborough Council to Waste Money on Electric Vehicles

Mission Impossible Movie Being Filmed on the NYMR

Word has reached me via YouTube that they’re filming scenes for the latest Mission Impossible movie on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

A video was put on YouTube of one of a pair of Class 66 Diesel Locomotives being shifted from York to the popular Yorkshire-based heritage railway by road after a landslip knackered any hope of sending the locomotive by rail on the track that links Middlesbrough to Whitby.

Haven’t seen anything about it elsewhere yet.

Update: Just got confirmation via ITV’s Twitter feed for the regional news…..

  • Whitby Website
  • Whitby Piers Website
