The North of England, birthplace of the industrial revolution, is home to an enormous variety of steam interest. In Middleton, near the centre of Leeds, one of the world's oldest railways has been resurrected, while the Bowes Railway still works its early rope hauled inclines. In the Lake District, narrow gauge steam conveys tourists through the beautiful scenery of Ravenglass and Eskdale, but equally delightful are the standard gauge Railways over the North Yorkshire Moors, and in the high valley of South Tyneside.

Active preservation societies operate traditional Pennine branch lines at the Keighley and Worth Valley, and in East Lancashire. Steam centres at Carnforth and Southport maintain locomotives which have access to BR's main lines, but the whole is finely complemented by collections from the National Railway Museum at York and the Beverley Museum of Army Transport.
