A few miles north takes you across the York Moors to ‘Heartbeat Country’ and the home of NYM Steam Railway, which runs from Pickering to Grosmont.
North Yorkshire Moors Railway Preservation Society was formed in June 1967 by a small group of local people. Its members were convinced that operating the line between Grosmont and Pickering could be viable if sufficient voluntary help was forthcoming. From one person in 1972 the numbers have grown with over 550 volunteers.
Today the North Yorkshire Moors Railway Trust 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. With a core team of paid staff together with approximately 100 full time staff and 50 seasonal staff staff, the charity operates the train services and works 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. The railway operates with the support and commitment of over 550 volunteers.
