“Brilliant!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is one thing you will have to go on. The quaint train takes you to Scalby Mills which I might add is another place that you have to see. Our children loved the train ride and also paddling at the other end while we enjoyed the surroundings. The staff at the North Bay Railway were very friendly and helpful.

“A TRIP ON A CHOO CHOO!!!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Beautiful views overlooking the North Bay, it's definitely worth a trip, well maintained railway with gift shop. Either take a one way trip or return journey. Scalby Mills at one end has the sea life centre and a fun crazy golf.
