Lovely pics mate! I that location near York station? :)
No, but there are plans for a meet to include all these places, if enough people are up for it.

If we make a day of it we can get a lot of locations in. A bicycle would be required (available for hire @ £10 at York station or bring your own). If the weather is decent during half-term that may be an option for me.

The best thing to do would be to start at the LC, then Colton and get views looking west (best for n/b), then make our way south to some other nearby bridges, then as the sun changes sides make our way back up again (looking east - best for s/b) and finally finishing with the LC's from the other side (time permitting). The great thing is the line is on a curve so it would work really well at all times of the day if the sun is out, and there is a good range of locations/angles to get.

http://yorkie.fotopic.net/p33391768.html - Colton Jn (evening shot - morning/early afternoon would be different)

http://yorkie.fotopic.net/p33886541.html - Old Road

http://yorkie.fotopic.net/p33391772.html - Church Lane

http://yorkie.fotopic.net/p33219484.html - the next bridge after Church Lane nr Bolton Percy

http://richardarmstrong.fotopic.net/p14131915.html - Earfit Lane (the crossing Jordy usually goes to but not the one from this collection).

With plenty of bridges and level crossings it's well worth a trip IMO.
