Take a trip behind one of the world’s greatest steam engines Royal Scot!

25, 26, 28, 29, 30 March and 1 & 2 April 2017

In 2017 the railway celebrates 50 years since the formation of the charitable Trust (1967 - 2017) and to set the wheels in motion for this anniversary year, popular locomotive, Royal Scot, will steam in to the attraction and set off the new season in style.

Royal Scot, which was built in 1927, was the first in a new breed of steam locomotives, made by the LMS for their fastest passenger services from London to Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow. She was then rebuilt by British Railways in 1950 and went on to serve another 12 years in traffic on the West Coast Main Line. She was eventually retired in October 1962.

After a major overhaul, Royal Scot returned to steam in September 2015. She made her successful main line debut on December 22nd and 23rd with test runs from Crewe to Carnforth and return. She hauled her first main line passenger train for over fifty years on February 6th 2016 from Crewe to Holyhead and will travel through the North York Moors National Park from Saturday 25th March 2017.

Royal Scot will be at the railway for all ages to enjoy from 25, 26, 28, 29, 30 March and 1 & 2 April, and fares will include a return journey from Grosmont to Pickering. Departure times will be 09.30, 12.30 and 15.30 lasting approximately 2 hours 45 minutes fixed round trip. 

A Scottish themed Pullman lunch services will also be steam hauled, running opposite to the Royal Scot services during the two weekends. Fares will include a three course lunch and a return journey from Grosmont to Pickering, departing at 13.20 and returning 16.05. Find out more.
