We are gearing up for our mesmerising Light Spectacular event, which takes place during October and November. Tickets are now on sale for this captivating steam train experience that departs from Pickering Station every evening from 27th October to 5th November and 10th to 12th November 2023 at 6pm and 7:45pm.

The hugely popular, hour-long, illuminated journey is an immersive audio and visual experience pulled by steam train adorned with 17,000 LEDs, which will entertain the whole family. Tickets for the must-see (and hear) experiences are £25 per person, and include an hour-long illuminated experience from Pickering to Levisham station. 

When passengers arrive, they are given a flashing wristband which synchronises with the on board lightshow and music which will have you singing and dancing in your seats. If that’s not enough, the entertainment by the NYMR’s onboard compere, TV’s ‘Voice Over Man’ will ensure you’re in the mood to party.

With carriages covered in thousands of LEDs, from the moment you enter the platform, spot the train and then climb on board, the whole family will be fully immersed in colour, light and sound that will get you in the mood for a party! 

Luke Hudman, Marketing Manager at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway explains, “It’s a fantastic event that has the wow factor and just makes everyone gasp and smile from the moment you see the train arrive at the platform - even the grown-ups! It’s so impressive and seeing the faces of families light up is a highlight in our events calendar each year. It’s a great way to end our main running season and we’ve already had many asking about tickets, so I recommend you book yours early!”

In addition, the award-winning attraction that welcomes 300,000 visitors a year has also announced the return of some of its popular visitor events, including the 50th Anniversary Steam Gala (21-24 September) and Santa Specials (various dates in November & December).

Specially discounted rates for groups of 20 people or more are also available and can be booked via the NYMR Customer Service Team: [email protected]
