Another great meal on board the NYMR. I am not sure how the staff pull it off but the always do. Good quality food on the move. It isn't cheap but it's an experience. I do think there have been a couple of cutbacks though which is a shame. Portions seems smaller but quality remains. Happily would do this again... More

Full price for the kids now they are 16 made it an expensive day at £104 for four of us to go from Pickering to Whitby, with £5 to park at Pickering and being charged a quid for a standard size mars bar in station cafe could have easily have put a damper on the day but actually it was... More

We began our railway journey at Pickering, & went right through to Whitby, it was very busy due to the fact that it was holiday season, but this added to the lovely feel of the line, we even enjoyed a much needed cup of tea on the return journey from the refreshments trolley, the views from the train were beautiful,...

A wonderful day out with my son and I. We are both steam train fans, and thoroughly enjoyed our day on the NYMR. Have been a few times before but first time to Whitby, wonderful views, wondeful volunteers, wondeful locos and trains.

We walked from Goathland to Grosmont and got the wonderful steam train back. What a fantastic journey with lovely friendly staff on a great steam train! Highly recommended for children and adults alike! Price wise it is well worth it and we look forward to doing a longer journey next time.

Great day out if a little expensive. Brought back many happy memory's of day's out to the seaside as a child. The coaches were very clean and comfortable although the food and refreshment service only offered a restricted choice of food and drinks. Great day out never the less.

Our return journey we had to squeeze into 2 table seats because the train was so full. we took the opportunity to get off the train to watch the engines being changed. Just take... More

Went with three children under 7. Thought the 1 and half hours to whitby would be anlong trip. The journey flee by. Kids loved the steam engine. Only issue is you need to get to train station about 1 hour before departure to get a good seat and sit together (if in groups).
