Please note this relates to a past event - for the NYMR Event's this year, visit

Little monsters are invited to enjoy a spook-tacular Halloween at

the North Yorkshire Moors Railway from Thursday 26th – Sunday 29th October. 

Join the spooky journey at Pickering in your very best fancy dress and then sit back and relax for a train ride to Levisham station.  This ‘fang-tastic’ event includes a return non-stop trip, filled with tricks and treats.

Three spooky services will run each evening during the event at 18:00, 19:30 and, for the more daring, North Yorkshire Moors Railway is offering a 21:00 service with additional scares!*

Chris Price, General Manager at North Yorkshire Moors Railway, said: “We are delighted to be adding this new event to this year’s season, as an extra special treat for October half term.  We look forward to welcoming visitors from near and far to experience the North Yorkshire Moors Railway at this magical time of year.”

Adult and child tickets cost just £20 per person, and includes a return journey from Pickering to Levisham with live actors and a Halloween Activity Bag, consisting of crayons, selfie props, selfie frames and a fun activity sheet. 

We expect this to be an extremely popular service and so advance booking is required. To book tickets, or for more information, visit

For regular news, updates and competitions, North Yorkshire Moors Railway is also on Facebook and Twitter

*We recommend this service is for children aged 5 years and upwards. The 21:00 service will also be made more frightful with additional scares!
