As we have moved back to hop-on and hop-off services, we are no longer able to reserve compartments or seats for visitors, other than for Groups of 20+ people or for disabled visitors in our Accessible Fuss-Free carriages.

Most services have standard compartments and First Class Compartments, each seat in these compartments are available on a first-come first-served basis. 

First Class Compartments are denoted with a Heather Purple Sticker on the compartment door - a supplement of £4 per person is payable to the Travelling Ticket Inspector to use these compartments, cash is preferred. Dogs are not permitted in First Class Compartments, with the exception of Assistance Dogs (Assistance Dogs are not allowed on the seats). During very busy periods the NYMR may, at its discretion, suspend this additional charge.

Please note that the last service out of Whitby can be extremely busy and if you would like a quieter service, please return on an earlier train.
