Ever fancied taking part in a World War Two Bake Off? Well this Yorkshire railway is holding one as part of their 1940s weekend
If you're a passenger of The North York Moors Railway this weekend, you will be supplied with 'ration book recipes' and if you pass with flying colours by baking one of these puds you could win an afternoon tea trip! From October 14-16, you can pop along to anyone of the stations along the 18-mile preserved line and step back in time as each location will be set up to look like a scene from WW2, including re-enactments of troop movements and child evacuations.
