Pickering Station Group's quiz for 2016 proved to be just as popular with visitors to the railway as the one produced in 2015. Once again we received a very good response to the competition with many correct answers.

The three lucky winners picked out at random were:-

  • 1st Prize of £30: Thomas W. from Spalding
  • 2nd Prize of £20: Linda W. from Stoke on Trent
  • 3rd Prize of £10: John P. from Stafford

The station group would like to thank Tony Sayers, Pickering Station Foreman and TTI who kindly set the questions and Sue Wright, volunteer, who compiled the anagrams. 

The funds raised by the quiz will be used to provide hanging baskets for Pickering Station, improving our Christmas decorations on the Santa Specials and re-designing/re-building our Santa grotto for Christmas 2017.

The answers were as follows:-


  • 1967
  • Eric Treacy
  • Grosmont
  • Sidings
  • The Esk
  • Levisham
  • Hogsmeade
  • W H Smith
  • DR Beeching
