North Yorkshire Moors Railway

12 Park Street, PICKERING, YO18 7AJ

In 1965 nearly 130 years of rail services came to a halt. The Esk Valley line was reprieved from the Beeching cuts, but the section of railway line between Pickering and Grosmont was closed. Eight years of hard work later the line was reopened by the North Yorkshire Moors Railway Preservation Society. More than just another line run by enthusiasts, the North Yorkshire Moors Railway operates a full timetable from March to October. The 18-mile rail journey takes you into the very heart of the moors - and more than 300,000 passengers travel on it every year, making the railway the biggest single attraction within the National Park. Board the train at Pickering Station, which dates from 1845. The line climbs into the spectacular steep-sided, wooded gorge of Newton Dale, before arriving at Levisham Station. Trains also call at Newtondale Halt, the starting point for a number of waymarked walks. The next stop is popular Goathland. The northern terminus was traditionally Grosmont, but now a selection of services carry onto the main Northern Rail line to Whitby.
