Welcome to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway

The North York Moors Historical Railway Trust is a not-for-profit charitable organisation run as part of the local community. Day to day operation is carried out by a wholly owned trading subsidiary which is made up of volunteers with railway operations and business experience. Volunteers, together with approximately 100 full time staff and 50 seasonal staff, plan and operate and staff the train service and work steadily to improve the quality of the infrastructure, the railway vehicles and the experience of our visitors travelling on the railway.

Every visitor that travels on the railway helps preserve one of the world's greatest railway experiences. 

  • The railway operates with the support and commitment of over 550 volunteers.
  • The NYMR cares for, operates and develops the historic railway we own between Pickering and Grosmont.

  • It aims to provide a high quality, safe and authentic evocation of the steam age for the public.
  • The railway is owned and operated by a Charitable Trust, providing education for all ages.
