Enthusiasts of the 1940s will be descending for the event Railway in Wartime on Yorkshire's largest heritage line this October.

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway commemorates World War II at four of its stations during the 1940s weekend, in which hundreds of military performers and visitors attend historical costumes.
