Have been going on this little train now for over 40 years,and it never disappoints,and when our grandson is too old we will go on it by ourselves,What am i saying,you are never too old for the little train. The cafe next to it is well worth a visit too.Good food and very obliging.

This is an excellent means of travelling to and from the sea life centre. Sea life and a lovely pirate themed crazy golf at bottom of slope when you alight.

We went on a return train journey twice during our holiday as my son loved it. He loved waving yo the people we passed and going through the tunnel. The staff at the station were very friendly.

Once again in Scarborough and so back for another ride on the NBR. What can you say - great views and kids love it especially watching the trains turn around and re-coupe to the carriages. Sure that we'll be back!
