We booked online to travel from Pickering to Whitby, cost £58 for two adults. We also paid £5 to park all day in their parking which there was plenty of. Would recommend getting there in plenty of time before the train leaves as there can...More

Takes you back to halcyon days. Excellent service. Very well kept facilities, incredible amount of railway stock and an unusually long section of track for a private railway. Yes it’s not cheap, but the staff are all volunteers, the price is the cost to keep...More

We travelled on the Moorlander Pullman on Saturday 15th September for our 21st anniversary, everyone was real friendly, the scenery brilliant with beautiful stations. The food was of a very high standard and thoroughly enjoyable. I would recommend

Yes this was busy in August and the tickets are on the expensive side.... but a trip on a steam railway is always fantastic and this did not disappoint. Super views over the moors

Unfortunately it seems that the NYMR has become a victim of its own success. The carriages have become over crowded and the whole experience we remembered 30 years ago has become totally over commercialised. We paid £60 to be moved 3 times on the trip...More

Thank you for your review. We did have a day last week when there were locomotive problems and I can only guess that that was the day that you travelled - hence your having to change trains. Unfortunately our elderly engines are now 30 years...More

At £29 a return ticket from Pickering to Whitby, it will sadly be the one and only trip we take on this historic railway line through the lovely North York Moors. We felt £29 per person was too expensive, even taking into consideration the cost...More

Not ure of actual times but it can be approached from two directions. You can walk to the other end of the village to a footpath next to the Mallyon Spout Hotel. This is a steep path down to the river. I think I would allow... More

If you check the timetable, the first train leaves Whitby at 10am arriving at Goatland at 10:50am. The last train from Goatland to Whitby leaves at 16:50pm, so you should have at least 5 hours. Hope this helps.
