Catch the earliest train from Pickering which sometimes is steam. a lovely journey through the moors to Whitby. A must. Scenery is lovely. you can call at some stations and alight if you like then pick up the next train for your onward journey.Thie does require planning though as the trains don't run that often off peak. We had a... More

We again traveled on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. This year we went from Levesham Station to Goathland and walked the moors back . A wonderful train ride ! Car parking great at Levesham Station and the enthusiastic staff were a pleasure.

An excellent day out to Pickering, a small market town wi some nice shops and a superb steam railway. Took the trip, and as you do, head out of the window, smoke and smuts in the eyes, but it brought back all those old memories from the 50's and early 60's that I thought had gone forever. There was a... More

Pickering to Whitby on some of the most iconic steam trains built; it couldn't get much better. Beautiful countryside and social history along the way ending at the best location for fish and chips in the country. More British you could not get.

I travelled on the NYM railway over 20 years ago and on a recent trip to Pickering we decided to take the round trip to Whitby. As a railway enthuiast the opportunity to travel behind steam both ways was too good to miss. We left the trin at Grosmont on the return journey and walked along the Rail Trail to... More

Very disappointed to find our trip to Whitby was diesel hauled both ways rather that steam although we had been assured by staff that at least one way would be steam hauled.We only took the trip in order to be hauled by a steam engine and we feel somewhat cheated. Won't bother again although we intend to re-visit the area.

I visit many times and enjoy the ambience created during the Steam Gala weekend. Nice and relaxing day and good opportunities to take photographs. Fully recommended!

The trip itself was fantastic and we felt we were in a Restaurant. All of the Staff were... More
