Railway Conservation. Run by Volunteers. Not for profit.

Today the North Yorkshire Moors Railway Trust is a not-for profit charitable organisation run as part of the local community. Day to day operation is carried out by volunteers with railway operations and business experience. A core team of paid staff together with approximately 100 full time staff and 50 seasonal staff, plan and operate the train service and work steadily to improve the quality of the infrastructure, the railway vehicles and experience to our visitors travelling on the railway.

Every visitor that travels on the railway helps preserve one of the world's greatest railway experiences. 

  • The railway operates with the support and commitment of over 550 volunteers.
  • The NYMR cares for, operates and develops the historic railway we own between Pickering and Grosmont.
  • Its trains also operate over the Network Rail line from Grosmont to Whitby.
  • It aims to provide a high quality, safe and authentic evocation of the steam age for the public.
  • The railway is owned and operated by a Charitable Trust, providing education for all ages.
  • The NYMR is a fully accredited museum.
