Slow but sure good.

Nostalgia was number one on this trip back in time . Pricey but well worth it . Book in advance if possible.

A day ticket seems expensive especially it you start at dinner time like our family did but we still managed to stop off at the 2 main stations and see Whitby- beach and fish and chips. A full day would have meant seeing all the trains and model railway instead of having lunch but this means a further visit. My... More

A great way to spend a relaxing day out, while visiting local villages and attractions. Not the cheapest but great to travel in a piece of local history.

Had a really great day out on the railway. My husband had a return journey on the footplate, I got a free return ticket included in the experience price and the grand kids really enjoyed the day, ( loads of thanks to the North Yorkshire Transport Police ) who had a stand on the station and dressed the kids up...

Ticket purchase at the charming old Pickering station was easy (£15.50 single senior ticket to Whitby). We were helped by friendly staff all in uniform, the feel is distinctly old-world steam railway. The carriages are beautifully restored interwar period style. We had a very pleasant steam through countryside varying from hills and valleys, woodland, moorland and farmland complete with very... More

Try the 60's weekend and visit Levisham station for the music then go into pickering in the evening for local bands playing in the streets

Wonderful trip from Pickering to Whitby through beautiful countryside. Pickering Station full of atmosphere and the staff obviously love their surroundings. Recommend it as a great day out and came back First Class for extra comfort.

We recently took the steam train to Whitby from Pickering. The stations are oldy-worldy and quite interesting. The route the train goes through is not stunning, like some other steam train rides you can go on in the UK but it was a good way to avoid driving to and parking in Whitby! I think £26 per adult is a... More

The railway station at Pickering is like stepping back in time with all the smells and noises from my child hood. The North Moors Railway is a great way to spend a day,even if you are disappointed with the diesel train that turns up (even thats vintage). The 24 mile ride from Pickering to Whitby is through some of the... More

My partner and I are steam train enthusiasts although it was a diesel running on the day! It does warn of the possibility in the small print so couldn't complain. I had arranged with the tea room staff at Grosmont Station to have an afternoon tea platter waiting as we were celebrating his birthday. Got great value for money, delicious... More
