It’s a few years now since I first accidentally stumbled upon the North Yorkshire Moors Railway’s Wartime Weekend. Since then it’s become rather a fixture in the calendar. Thomas and Yumina have come up for the last three years, and this time Richard and Claire and my Whitby mate Simon joined us too.
Handily, my wardrobe of old and unfashionable clothing is so deep that I can quite easily clothe several men for a 1940s festival, though I did think Thomas was a particularly good sport letting me style him as a French Resistance operative this year.
Should anyone else fancy getting involved, the next one is 9-11 October 2020.
