“First class attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Our party of 4 travelled to Whitby return via a stop off at Goathland. The staff are all helpful and the journey was an experience I shall always remember. Thanks to everyone for a really good day out at a very reasonable price.

“a perfect day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

The trip on the railwat was part of a day trip to Whitby, so we did do the round trip. I was a little expensive £24 return each, but if we are to keep such memories alive we must be prepared to support causes such as this. The scenery is glorious, it ran on time, the stations en route and the smells of steam etc all brought childhood memories flooding back. Well worth it!

Walked from Beckhole to Grosmont and then to Goathland before stopping off for a few pints of 40th Anniversary ale at he 50/60's event and enjoyed listening and watching the Jive Express play. Great afternoon before walking back to Beckhole.

“Wonderful Day of Steam Train Travel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The trip from Pickering to Whitby and back was wonderful. Having the opportunity to travel on a vintage steam train through the incredibly picturesque North Yorkshire Moors was a real treat. The stations, atmosphere, and fellow travelers all added to the experience.

“Fantastic day out on the NYMR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

It's a long time since we visited the NYMR. So we decided to revisit, this time with friends who had never been. My mate is a big fan of steam trains as well so we really were looking forward to our visit.
We were not disappointed. The journey to and from Whitby was excellent, the scenery is first class and as the train only travels at 12mph you get to see it all. On the way back we upgraded to 1st class , at the time of travel this was £3.50 per person, well worth it.
One thing we did not know was that NYMR own Sir Nigel Gresley.
The day after our trip we went back to the station in PIckering to see Sir Nigel Gresely, well worth the visit, you even get chance to get into the cab.

There is no charge to view the station / trains, but you pay for a day rover ticket.

All the staff we spoke to were volunteers, they were really helpful and charming.
