Pickering is absolutely delightful. Travelling from Pickering to Whitby on the railway is fantastic. The views are spectacular and the train got held up by sheep!

Food is available on board, with hot coffee, chocolate and tea. The highlight was seeing Goathland... More

On our outward journey we had a diesel engine for most of the journey, with a steam engine added before we reached Whitby.... More

Beautiful scenery around and about plus near a nice tea room or two. But first and foremost - Sir Nigel Gresley is based there.

My wife recently treated me to a trip aboard this service as an early Birthday present and could not have made a better choice in my opinion. We travelled from Grosmont to Pickering and back in the Pullman coach "Opal" and had an excellent meal, as well as enjoying the scenery from the comfort of our luxury seats. The roast... More
