We love this railway and visited many times. A pity it was not open all the way to Whitby just before New Year as that meant one of us had to drive to Grosmont to take us on by car and then the other drive back from there after. Trains were full so suspect there might have been demand if... More

An absolutely outstanding railway to visit in every way. From the moment you step onto the station to the moment you leave you are transported back in time to an era where steam was king. The beautifully restored rolling stock are just a treasure to ride in and I did enjoy putting my melon out the window to watch the... More

This is a realy good fun thing to do if you are a couple, a group or a family with kids. The whole experience is pretty good fun and a bit novel. If you read before hand what to look out for and look at the Harry Potter links and a series of Heartbeat all the better. We went on... More

We had an excellent time on the dining train. The three course meal is delicious and the staff really excellent. During our holiday we also wanted to go to Whitby on the train as a unique experience. As this was only timetabled for a Sunday we made a special effort to visit to go to Whitby. Sadly, when we arrived... More

I would advise anybody intending to visit to visit the NYMR web site first as things change every day and running is limited during... More

Probably the best Santa in the world - possibly the real deal. Mrs Claus is fabulous too. There's no better start to Christmas.

Have visited this excellent attraction many times including 5 day footplate experience and journeys on the Pullman Diner. Already booked accommodation to attend both weekends of Spring Steam Gala in April 2015 as well as the Pickering Pullman. Even if you only have a mild interest in steam / railway history this attraction should not be missed. Fantastic scenery on... More
