In 1903 the North Eastern Railway designed and built a pair of “autocars” which laid the foundation for most of the trains running today.

This was the world’s first use of an internal combustion engine in a passenger carrying rail vehicle.

Luckily, the body of 3170 was sold to a North Yorkshire landowner and made into a holiday home at Keldholme near Kirkbymoorside on the North Yorkshire Moors.

In 2003 it was sold to Stephen Middleton and moved to the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Railway.

Now, some 116 years since it was first released for passenger duties, it runs again, doing exactly what it did all those years ago!

After further investigation we found out that underneath all the rust on the tender tank side, the original pre 1939 Southern Railway lettering still remained - however, the tender we had originally belonged to 828s sister locomotive number 830!

This weekend we're delighted to announce we'll welcome one of the best restored coaches of its type into passenger service for the first time.
Built in Birmingham in 1930, LNER Brake Third Corridor coach 3669 was restored from a dilapidated shell by its owners, and until recently ran on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Providing four exquisite seating compartments and accommodation for the train guard, this beautiful vehicle will be the star attraction at Kirkby Stephen East this Easter, bringing a taste of 1930's art deco elegance to our passenger trains.
Created by the same designer as locomotives Flying Scotsman and Mallard, 3669 will once again be hauled a by a sparkling blue steam engine in the shape of our Peckett 'Lytham'; whilst she isn't quite as glamorous as Gresley's fast and powerful main line creations, they'll make an eye-catching combination in the Easter sunshine
