Full services resume at North Yorkshire Moors Railway

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) will resume full services from Monday August 8th, with the return of its Gold Timetable itineraries, following a period of reduced services to avoid risk of lineside fires caused by the recent dry spell of weather.

Chris Price, General Manager at NYMR, said: “Working with our local stakeholders we took the decision last month to supplement our Steam Locomotive fleet with diesel engines assisting our trains, to minimise the risk of further fires.

“Now that we have finally had some rain, it’s great that we’re able to go back to our full steam service for the remainder of the summer holidays.”

As an added bonus for families enjoying fun-filled days out this Summer, the NYMR, has also announced that from Monday 8th August to Sunday 4th September kids can visit the award-winning attraction free of charge*.

They’ll have plenty to talk to their friends about back at school, after taking in 24 miles of interesting scenery and even following in the footsteps of Harry Potter – the railway is a popular filming location, including Goathland doubling for the iconic Hogsmeade Station from Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone.

As a not-for-profit charitable trust run by more than 900 volunteers, everyone that travels on the NYMR helps preserve one of the world’s greatest heritage railway experiences for generations to come.

*Kids Go Free: Children Tickets are valid for children aged 4-15 years old.
