18th February - 26th February 2017

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have your name on the front of a steam engine? This February half term, 18th to 26th February, we are giving our younger passengers the chance to have their name on a headboard on the front of a steam locomotive.

All children visiting the railway over the holiday, aged 4 to 15 years old, will be given the chance to enter for this one-off exclusive opportunity. The winning entrant will be able to see their name on a headboard, running over the Easter weekend and the lucky winner will get to keep the headboard as a unique souvenir! Terms & Conditions apply

This half term you will have the opportunity to explore the railway's four stations and travel along the 18-mile railway line aboard steam and heritage diesel trains. At Pickering station explore the 1930s station and visit Peter's Railway Young Engineer's Centre, an interactive exhibition for children to learn about engineering and science through storytelling. Levisham station is great location for letting off steam with the many scenic walks in the North York Moors National Park.

At Goathland explore the celebrity station which became Hogsmeade Station in the first Harry Potter film and visit the converted 1922 style goods shed tearoom. Meanwhile at Grosmont station visitors will have the chance to explore the engine sheds where our steam and diesel locomotives are maintained and restored.
