Rebuilding the Driffield to Malton Railway

Just read the article on the above subject in 'Have Your Say On Driffield'. Great article. Anybody ever harboured similar thoughts and ideas and wanted to turn them into reality ?

Sounds like an interesting idea, have seen it done in other parts of the country. Makes a huge difference in improving the livelihoods of local businesses.

Keep it up!

A Scarborough to Whitby line would be good too!

I would like a Driffield to Malton , Malton/Market Wheiton to Pickering then join the Pickering to Grosmont then onto Whitby. Could the councillors apply to the DTI , Lottery, European grants etc and join with their colleagues in Malton and Market Wheiton to get this up and running. There will be loads of people that will volunteer to help etc. COME ON COUNCILERS WHAT DO YOU THINK??

I think it would be a great idea to try and reinstate part at least of the Driffield to Malton railway. Possibly around the Fimber or North Grimston area's. It would be a great tourist attraction and there is standard gauge motive power available locally, bothsteam and diesel.

This is now being discussed at length both on here and at including the formation of the Yorkshire Wolds Railway Restoration Project so this topic will be locked.
