The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is one of the world’s greatest heritage
experiences with thrills and family fun at its heart. Climb on board a steam or heritage diesel train on one of the most historic lines in the UK.

We are an 18 mile long standard gauge railway running from Pickering to Grosmont (junction with main railway network), passing through the heart of the North York Moors National Park, an area of outstanding scenic beauty, with many services now running to and from Whitby.

Today the railway is a not-for-profit charitable organisation run as part of the local community. Day to day operation is carried out by volunteers with railway operations and business experience. A core team of paid staff together with approximately 100 full time staff and 50 seasonal staff, plan and operate the train service and work steadily to improve the quality of the infrastructure, the railway vehicles and experience to our visitors travelling on the railway.

Every visitor that travels on the railway helps preserve one of the world's greatest railway experiences.
