One of the UK’s most popular heritage attractions, North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) has announced its 2021 season and will open the heritage line and stations from Saturday May 15th.

The railway will be operating two trains to Whitby every day, as well as an intermediate service between Pickering and Grosmont.

The railway is planning to operate with Covid-19 mitigations, until the summer holidays, with pre-booked end to end services with a set departure and return time. The railway’s intermediate service, between Pickering and Grosmont, will enable passengers the opportunity to hop-on and hop-off and explore Levisham, Goathland and Grosmont stations.

Chris Price, General Manager, said:

“It was a huge relief when the government announced its roadmap, which now enables the railway to plan and prepare for when it can reopen. It will be great to see the staff and volunteers preparing the engines, stations, shops and tea rooms, ready to welcome passengers once more”.
