It does say on their web site that they cannot guarantee a steam engine and unfortunately on the first part of our trip it was substituted with a diesel - but the journey from Pickering to Whitby was wonderful. The scenery is lovely and every stop keeps the theme of yester year - so you could really believe that you... More

We caught the 09.30 from Pickering and although it was late we were happy with the service until we arrived at Grosmont when the steam engine was changed for a diesel. On the return journey, we were disappointed to see the same diesel engine waiting for us at Whitby but thought that we'd be lucky enough to have the steam... More

What I like about the North Yorkshire moors train is you can buy a rover ticket for the day and hop on and off at the various stops. The train trundles through lovely yorkshire countryside between Whitby and Pickering bringing back memories of steam trains of old.

We bought Day Rover tickets and stopped off at various stops en route. The scenery is spectacular, and both Goathland and Grosmont stations are interesting to look round.There are cafes where you can get drinks, snacks and meals, you can also purchase drinks on the train. Lots to see for anyone interested in steam locomotives - and plenty of photo... More

The train was very clean and quite comfortable and the guard was friendly and informative being clearly very interested in his job. Even with Senior Citizen discount, the fare was somewhat high and not good value for money. Goathland(Aidensfield) was quite uninspiring. Apart from the pub(Aidensfield Arms), the village was just a string of fairly seedy gift shops.

Fantastic food, lovely service and staff. We travel at least once a year on the Moorlander and have never come away feeling disappointed. Jill and her staff do a fantastic job of serving food while the train is travelling and always have a cheery word to everyone. The Moorlander and other services are very popular so book well in advance... More

We visited the NYMR, using the York City Pass. We both enjoyed the journey from Pickering to Whitby on one of NYMR's steam locomotives. Breathtaking scenery and a step back in time. Return journey was £25 per person, but free if you use the City Pass. We only had just over an hour in Whitby, as we visited several other... More

A day ticket on this line, jumping on and off as you please in any of the lovely villages on the line is the most amazingly good value day out I can imagine. My wife and I got off once in each direction so we ended up having been pulled by four different locomotives, one being the famous Sir Nigel... More

The railway offers a frequent service which is an ideal way of leaving the car behind and seeing the scenery in this area as well as avoiding the issue of car parking in Whitby! The stations particularly Pickering and Goathland are wonderful time capsules lovingly cared for. Some of the carriage interiors leave a little to be desired and are... More
