The Pickering Station Group Quiz for 2017 proved to be very popular with visitors to the railway. We received a good response to the competition, but this time we had only ONE completely correct answer, this was from Alexander Mackenzie of Marske by Sea who wins our first prize of £30.

Many people failed on question 2, but completed the rest of quiz successfully, of these the following were picked out at random. 

2nd Prize - £20 – Catherine Mackenzie – Marske by Sea

3rd Prize - £10 – Lily Ford - Belper

Pickering Station Group would like to thank all those who bought tickets, the funds raised will be used to enhance passenger facilities at Pickering and to enhance our Santa Special offerings in 2018.

We would also like to thank Bernard Gospel who compiled the quiz and all those who gave up their time to sell quiz sheets on our trains.
