North Yorkshire Moors Railway
North Yorkshire Moors Railway information
The privately owned North Yorkshire Moors Railway runs for 18 miles through beautiful countryside to the village of Grosmont. Lovingly restored steam locos pull period carriages resplendent with polished brass and bright paintwork, and the railway appeals to train buffs and day trippers alike. For visitors without wheels, it's excellent for reaching out-of-the-way spots.
Even more usefully, Grosmont is on the main railway line between Middlesbrough and Whitby, which opens up yet more possibilities for walking or sightseeing. Another useful website is www.nymr.demon.co.uk.
