Pickering Station

Pickering Station is a must-see 1930’s themed station that will transport you back in time to the steam era.  A highlight of Pickering Station is the magnificent roof structure which was recently re-instated to the same design as the original, built in 1847 by GT Andrews. The station itself is a great place to pick up a souvenir or you can pop into the traditional railway tea room serving tasty meals and snacks.

The historic market town of Pickering still holds its traditional market every Monday. Around the corner from the NYMR is Beck Isle Museum where you can discover the heritage, history and culture of life in Pickering. Visit Pickering’s 13th century castle to discover how it was used throughout the centuries. Don’t forget to head up to the Market Place to browse the many great shops or visit Pickering Church, home of the famous medieval wall paintings.

Levisham Station

Explore Levisham Station which is surrounded by the North York Moors. Take a trip back in history and experience a 1912 styled railway station which is also home to the NYMR’s artist in residence. During weekends, bank holidays and special events the Weighbridge Tea Hut is open serving tasty snacks and drinks to visitors, walkers and cyclists.

Goathland Station

A must-see is the celebrity station which became Hogsmeade Station in the first Harry Potter film and featured as Aidensfield in the ITV programme Heartbeat. The charming village of Goathland is just a few minutes’ walk up the bank from the station, with a great range of shops and pubs. You could explore the national park; embark on a country walk along the Rail Trail back to Grosmont or to the Mallyan Spout Waterfall. Goathland Station has its very own shop and has a tea room which is in a converted 1922 style goods shed.

Grosmont Station

Grosmont Station is home to the operating and engineering world of the NYMR. Here you will find the engine sheds where our steam and diesel locomotives are maintained and restored. Head through the George Stephenson tunnel built in 1835 and you’ll find yourself at the shed shop. If you are lucky you might also be able to catch a sneaky peak at the work taking place on our engines. The 1952 themed Grosmont Station is the junction where the heritage railway ends, and the main rail network begins, connecting both Middlesbrough and Whitby to the NYMR with the Esk Valley Line.

Whitby Station

Steeped in history Whitby is known for its quirky narrow streets and bustling harbour overlooked by the striking ruins of Whitby Abbey. Explore the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, where you can learn about the famous explorer's life or visit the Dracula Experience on the seafront.
