For the next three weekends (until 25th March), the North Yorkshire Moors Railway will be running extra trains – six services instead of four – from both Grosmont and Pickering stations. The Railway, which winds through the North York Moors National Park, has featured in numerous films and TV shows including the Harry Potter films and, most recently, on BBC TV’s The Great British Countryside.
It’s marvellous travelling on a steam train chuffing away through some of the finest scenery in the land and it’s a great activity for kids of all ages to experience. Even better is that for the next three weekend in March train-travellers can take advantage of low winter fares. Day rovers cost £7.50 for children, £15 for adults and £13 for concessions. Even better value is a family ticket of up to 2 adults and 4 children – all for £31.
The first train leave Grosmont at 9.15 am, and departs from Pickering at 10.00 am, and all the trains call at every station in between.
The General Manager of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Philip Benham, said that another attraction will be that Engine 75029 (which used to be called the Green Knight) will be on the tracks, as well as the Scenic Diesel Railcar.
