North Yorkshire Moors Railway online: information and bookings

Let the North Yorkshire Moors Railway take you on a nostalgic journey back to the glorious age of steam. Travel through 18 miles of stunning countryside, in comfortable carriages, through picturesque stations pulled by a majestic steam locomotive. Simply enjoy the peaceful timelessness of it all.

Running between the picturesque market town of Pickering to Grosmont, 18 miles away, the line travels through some of the most dramatic scenery in Britain. The first stop after Pickering is the remarkably isolated station of Levisham, in a location which has not changed in over 100 years and is remarkably untouched by modern day influences.

From Levisham it is only a short ride to Newton Dale Halt which is a request stop only and is situated in the midst of Newton Dale forestry and makes an ideal stop for both walkers and cyclists.

Back on the train, the track climbs steadily through the breathtaking North York Moors National Park to the beautiful country station of Goathland. This station regularly appears in Yorkshire Television's 'Heartbeat' series as 'Aidensfield' and recently hosted the film crew and actors for the new Harry Potter film 'The Philosopher's Stone' where Goathland appears as 'Hogsmead'.

The journey continues on through some of the most exciting scenery of the whole line and arrives at Grosmont, located just 6 miles away from the seaside port of Whitby.

It is at Grosmont that the engine sheds are located and where all the work in maintaining our fleet of engines is undertaken.

No trip to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway can be truly complete without visiting the epicentre of operations at our Motive Power Department. These engine sheds are where all our locomotives are restored and repaired by many skilled staff. Access to the engine sheds is through the oldest remaining railway tunnel in the world. Upstairs there is the Shed Shop which sells a unique collection of railway related items, models and souvenirs.

Many of the services now go beyond Grosmont, into Whitby. Please click through to website above before you travel. www.nymr.co.uk or telephone Customer Services telephone number is 01751 472508. Email: info@nymr.co.uk
