Schools out for Summer: 22nd July - 3rd September

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is one of the world’s greatest heritage railway experiences with thrills and family fun at its heart. Climb on board a steam or heritage diesel train and experience 24 miles of Yorkshire’s amazing scenery at this must-see visitor attraction.

Explore the Railway:-

  • Pickering Station is a must-see 1930’s themed station that will transport you back in time to the steam era.
  • Visit Levisham and let off steam in the North York Moors National Park. 
  • A must-see is the celebrity station, Goathland, which became Hogsmeade Station in the first Harry Potter film.
  • Explore Grosmont Station which is home to the operating and engineering world of the NYMR. If you are lucky you might be able to catch a sneaky peak at the work taking place on our engines!
  • Visit Whitby with its narrow streets and bustling harbour overlooked by the striking ruins of Whitby Abbey.


SR No. 926 “Repton“
will also be running over the school holidays, making a return after overhaul. She has been running in her British Railways colours and numbering as 30926 but will return to traffic in Southern Railways Olive Green under her old number 926. Designed by Richard Maunsell for the Southern Railway in 1930, the "V Class" - better known as the "Schools Class" as all locomotives were named after English public schools was intended to meet a need for an intermediate passenger locomotive for routes needed power, but couldn't handle large express engines. Essentially a cut-down "Lord Nelson" class, Maunsell used the round-topped firebox from the "King Arthur" class, which had the useful side-effect of making the "Schools" narrow enough for routes such as Tonbridge to Hastings with a restricted loading gauge.
