This was an excellent day out. We caught the train from Leeming Bar to Redmire. From there we were able to walk to Castle Bolton (30 minutes) and then back to the Bolton Arms in Redmire for lunch. From there it is 10-15 minutes back to the station. The volunteers are incredibly helpful and friendly. The shop at Leeming Bar... More

It was a glorious Sunday afternoon in September when we were all seated at our individually named tables with tablecloths and vases of flowers. The waitress brought us trays of sandwiches as we journeyed through the gorgeous countryside from Leeming Bar to Redmire. Pouring the tea from... More

Weather was very ordinary and we were looking for something to cheer us up. We started at Leeming Bar and whilst we waited for the diesel train to depart we had a coffee in the buffet car parked at the platform. We were greeted by smartly dressed volunteer who took trouble to make us the drink that each of us... More

Lovely way to spend a coupe of hours admiring the scenery. You can get off at the few stops along route, definitely take the time to walk to The Tea Pottery in Leyburn. Reasonably priced for a family of 4 Adults and 1 child.

we had the most memorable time and was transported back to the days of the railways. The staff were helpful and informative and the views were exceptionally wonderful. The train went through some of the most fantastic countryside in the country

We joined the train at Redmire and travelled to Northallerton West and then back to Redmire. It was a most interesting journey coming out of The Dales and into general countryside. The steam train was not available but my husband enjoyed taking photos of the changing scenery - made better my having a beautifully sunny day. There is still so... More
