Dinner on the NYMR Pullman is a great experience, hauled by steam train from Grosmont to Battersby, we had a table in stylish Car 79. A memorable 10th wedding anniversary.

Atmospheric,well run, helpful staff, Great experience.
Just imagine a huge steam train arriving in a cloud of steam, lots of hustle and bustle, doors banging, whistle blowing. What a way to start a journey. An then passing through beautiful countryside.
This is an experience NOT to be missed.

Pity there are not steam engines on each of the journeys.

This station is the gem on the NYMR. Full of atmosphere and period retained detail in a stunning setting on North Yorkshire Moors. You can see why it is always chosen as Steam railway film location. You may travel from here to Whitby and or Pickering ..... Tip stand on the railway footbridge to capture the steam trains on camera or feel the steam beneath your feet. Wonderful location.

In contrast to some other heritage railways, this runs through some nice scenery and it's even possible to take a steam train all the way to Whitby on Network Rail tracks past Grosmont. There should be more trains to Whitby - NYMR take note here please ! There were even a team of 2 cleaning the carriage windows as we waited in Grosmont station for the diesel loco to come off and steam loco to be coupled up. The station at Goathland had a gift shop, cafe, toilets and a proper booking office - the woman selling tickets was most helpful and of a pleasant disposition and obviously liked her job.
There were also cafes at Grosmont and Pickering stations and a trolley service on the trains was a nice touch.

Even without the Heartbeat and Harry Potter connections, Goathland Station is a gem. Set in a beautiful location and evoking an authentic aura of times gone by. Call in when the trains come through (usually two at once as the trains pass in the loop here) or have a cuppa in the converted goods-shed sitting on benches made out of old railway wagons. We visit the area several times a year to support the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Wonderful!
