C>Ways provides three high definition webcams with audio!

In September 2016 the North Yorkshire Moors Railway launched a live webcam from Grosmont Station, enabling rail enthusiasts from all over the world to watch the award-winning visitor attraction. With over 267,000 unique views (1st September to 31st March 2017) the webcam was well received and a huge success. 

In sponsorship with C>Ways we are pleased to announce that this camera has now been upgraded (donated free of charge) with a new high definition camera with audio, enabling the ambient sounds of the locomotives to be heard across the world. 

Local company C>Ways (Wykeham) are a leading provider of IT solutions, delivering solution innovation to server, storage, network and virtualisation technologies; specialising in the implementation of niche products from dedicated, industry-leading technology providers. 

Ross Newsome, IT Manager at North Yorkshire Moors Railway, said: “It is exciting to collaborate with a local company in bringing modern technology to a heritage line. C>Ways have agreed to donate three new cameras, one of which has replaced the camera at Grosmont. Website enhancements such as high definition webcams are are great way of educating and engaging with visitors on the website."

Annually the railway carries over 350,000 passengers, many of which know it as an award-winning visitor attraction, but not as a not for profit charity. The North Yorkshire Moors Railway Trust is run as part of the local community, with the day to day operation carried out by volunteers with a wealth of railway and business experience. Every visitor that travels on the railway helps to preserve its heritage locomotives, coaches and infrastructure making it one of the world's greatest railway experiences.
