We are pleased to announce that we are once again running special steam hauled excursions to Whitby on Sunday 29th December 2019 & New Year's Day, Wednesday 1st January 2020. 

So why not enjoy a Winter's day out from Pickering and blow the cobwebs away at the seaside, or perhaps work off some of that Christmas pudding with a brisk walk in the fresh Whitby air.

These pre-booked services depart from Pickering Station and traverse the North York Moors National Park to Whitby. Here you will have just over 2 hours to spend in the town before the steam hauled service departs from Whitby Station.

Sunday 29th December 2019 & Wednesday 1st January 2020, 09:25 departure from Pickering and 14:00 departure from Whitby.
