A pair of Metro-Cammell Class 101 DMUs arrive at Whitby Station with a service train from Darlington on 27th August 1983. The increased in scheduled services from Middlesborough from 2019 will return the timetable to pre-1991 levels. Donald Taggart

It is reported that the number of passengers using services between Middlesbrough and Whitby has increased by 10% in the last year.


As a result some of the four trains a day are now overcrowded. From 2019, the new Northern timetable is being improved with the return of an all-year Sunday service, an an increase back to eight trains a day in each direction - the same as it was prior to 1991.
