NORTH YORKS MOORS RAILWAY

The North Yorks Moors Railway is a heritage railway that runs across the North Yorks Moors through great countryside between Whitby and Pickering, taking in the stations of Grosmont, Goathland, Newtondale and Levisham. Total journey time one way is between 1hr 40minutes and 2hrs. Many of the stations have been refurbished in period style. The railway runs as a not for profit charity and, from an initial meeting of enthusiasts in 1967, now employs about 100 full-time staff supported by more than 500 volunteers, operating a range of steam locomotives. Each station has its attractions: Whitby, famous fishing port with its abbey and associations with Captain Cook and Dracula; Goathland featured as Aidenfield in the TV series Heartbeat; Pickering is a bustling town with a castle, impressive church, museum etc.

It is essential to visit the NYMR website and check the timetable before making a special trip.
