Steam in to a fantastic weekend with the North Yorkshire Moors Railway

Whether you’re a steam train enthusiast or you just love a good family day out, the North Yorkshire Moors Railway is the perfect destination as it hosts its Annual Steam Gala from Friday 29th September to Sunday 1st October.

The heritage railway is home to a fabulous fleet of steam locomotives, but over this special weekend it will boast some new faces, such as 5199 from Llangollen Railway*, along with 1501 and 7714 from the Severn Valley Railway, which are all sure to bring that welcomed western feel.

During the weekend stations along the line will be hosting exciting events of their own such as the Autumn Steam Gala Beer Festival which sees Levisham and Goathland offering a wide selection of real ales from local breweries such as Brass Castle, Helmsley Brewing Co, Baytown and many more.

What’s more, author Chris Vine, who wrote the much loved children’s book, Peter’s Railway, will be at Pickering station doing an exclusive book signing, so come on down and say hello!

Chris Price, General Manager at North Yorkshire Moors Railway, said: “Every year we look forward to our Annual Steam Gala as it just seems to get better and better, and this year looks to be no different. We’re honoured to be welcoming such fantastic locomotives and an incredible author in Chris Vine. We hope many of you come along to see us, you won’t be disappointed!”

North Yorkshire Moors Railway is one of the most historic lines in the North of England, taking visitors on picturesque journeys along an 18 mile railway line aboard steam and heritage diesel trains.

The railway passes through stunning scenery, from wooded valleys to beautiful countryside, stopping at charming villages and a spectacular seaside location.
