Even if you aren't a railway enthusiast you will like this.
My Husband chose this as part of his birthday outing as it does not require much walking or excercise to do it.
There are facilities for the disabled and the trains can be accessed by a wheelchair.
Pickering Station is full of old world charm, as are all the stations on the line.
We went the full trip to whitby and back and enjoyed it immensly.
I don't really know anything about trains but i have always loved travelling on them. this was no exception. The carriages are out of the fifties and sixties and this took me back to my younger days. The ones that I saw were in better condition that a couple of the current trains i have travelled on, on main lines. Tne staff obviously treasure their rolling stock.
The train journey is not to be rushed and the gently pace made it all the better, that by the time we got back to pickering i was thoroughly relaxed.
This is one of those experiences where the journey is the best thing and not the destination.
Brilliant day out. You need to set out early if you want to make the most of whitby or the other villages along the line.
