"North Yorkshire Moors Railway", U.K.

Photo: c.1980's. Taken on the Preserved "North Yorkshire Moors Railway". "B.R" Class 4 Tank Engine. My Wife is seen being bored in the photo!!
Is it 1950 or 1980? I like the composition but more important the feeling of timelessness.
Dogface.....thanks for comment! Yes, it is quite definately the 1980's! It is, as you rightly say a "timeless scene" of a typical British Branch Line in the 1950's or early 60's!
I don't know wether you have seen a British Television Drama Series called "Heartbeat", set in North Yorkshire? Anyway, this is the Railway used in the programmes.
All good wishes, GUY in the U.K.
