NYMR set for a festive season with Santa Specials

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) has had a jam-packed year celebrating the 50th anniversary of the heritage railway with Santa Express and an opportunity to meet Father Christmas and his helpers up next.

These magical services will bring the festive season to life during the weekends of 25, 26 November and 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23 & 24 December. You and your family will join Santa and his team of playful elves on board The Santa Express, whisking you away on an unforgettable journey filled with laughter, joy, and plenty of holiday spirit. 

Departing from Pickering or Grosmont Station, visitors can climb aboard the decorated carriages for the ultimate festive experience, where children will meet Father Christmas and his jolly helpers as they pass through the carriages. If children have stayed on the nice list this year, they will receive a special gift from the legendary man himself. Santa’s Helpers will also be on the hour-long return journey to make cherished memories that last a lifetime. 


Luke Hudman, Marketing Manager at the NYMR said, “As we get excited for the festivities ahead, it’s important to remember that the winter season is when the NYMR team knuckle-down and carry out necessary maintenance to ensure locomotives are safe and running most efficiently. Rest assured that if you’re climbing aboard for one of the Santa Special services, you’re in for a fantastic experience and by purchasing your ticket you’ll also be donating vital funds to ensure the railway carries out important work to keep it steaming on into 2024.”

Tickets for the magical adventure aboard the Santa Express are available now for a Christmas journey you won’t forget. For more information and to purchase tickets visit,
