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

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway commemorates World War Two at four of its stations during the 1940s-themed weekend, which attracts hundreds of military re-enactors and visitors in period costume.

The family-friendly event, which runs from October 11-13, includes activities suitable for all ages.

There will be live music, a recreation of a rationing-era British restaurant, and re-enactment displays along the line.

There's a new D-Day exhibition at Pickering Station, while at Levisham Station children can watch an interactive show telling the story of a young evacuee sent to East Yorkshire.
