The locos are in an excellent state of preservation, on our trip we went on 61994 and 75029. the trains are eight carriages long so that there is plenty of room for everybody, even in busy times and we were really...

We set off on a beautiful June evening for dinner on the Pullman service. The train was full of eager passengers. We were met by friendly staff and escorted to our table - there was a little card stating what we had preordered which was good as we had booked this months ago. We set off passing through outstanding scenery... More

The North York Moors Historic Railway Trust now operate the line, alegedly the longest private historic line in the country. Regular Steam services from Pickering to Grosmont (where it joins the rail network from Middlesbrough to Whitby) since the second platform was rebuilt at Whitby a... More

We went from Pickering to Whitby with a child and dog. Our dog is very quiet and well behaved and enjoyed her trip to the seaside albeit a new way to get there. Stress free from parking in Whitby too. We had a lovely day walking round before having to go back to Pickering. The pricing is definitely a factor... More

For a steam railway enthusiast and a lover of the North York Moors the North Yorkshire Moors Railway is the best mode of transport to see areas inaccessible to other forms of transport.

I have been on the North Yorkshire Moors railway many times, when on holiday in Scarborough or Whitby. Unspoiled scenery on the trip, get off at Goatland for Heartbeat Country (Aidensfield) .

Fantastic time at the railway. Plenty to see and do even if you not a steam buff. Staff are very friendly. Well worth doing the whole trip from Pickering to whitby.

Probably the best attraction on the N. Yorks moors. It's a must do. You can ride on trains between Pickering and Whitby taking in some of the best the scenery the N. Yorks moors has to offer. You can visit the little villages of Grosmont, Gothland (Aidensfield if you ever watched Heartbeat) and Levisham, or the small towns of Pickering... More
