Our readers share their photos of all things train related in Yorkshire.

Yorkshire has a long and proud history with the railways and it comes as no surprise that the National Railway Museum is based in York, home to many iconic engines.

The railways have been the hub of Yorkshire communities and the home of many iconic feats of engineering and achitecture, that can be witnessed in the countless bridges, aqueducts and stations.

Goathland Station is one of the more famous stations in the region as it was the film setting for Hogsmeade Station in the Harry Potter film series, while Embsay station is the terminus of the heritage Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway and a popular stop off point for those visiting the Yorkshire Dales.

The Flying Scotsman embarks on a UK wide tour this summer, and many routes come through Yorkshire so there are plenty of opportunities to capture it in action. (Please heed the safety warning issued regarding the safe viewing of the train)
