Following the tremendous success of its Channel 5 programme, The Yorkshire Steam Railway: All Aboard, the North Yorkshire Moors Railway will be releasing its very own feature length film!

Life at the Railway will feature everyone’s favourite railway characters, including Mr Dependable, Paul Middleton aka Piglet, and Bert Blower, the travelling ticket inspector who the nation fell in love with.

The movie, which will be in cinemas later this year, follows the hard working team as they continue to bring joy to over 350,000 passengers every year. It has already received rave reviews and is sure to be a great watch for all the family.

Yorkshire’s Magnificent Journey aims to raise £2,500,000. Keeping 18 miles of railway with more than thirty bridges through the difficult countryside of the North York Moors in top-notch condition is a continuing challenge. The 180-year old railway already invests around £1 million annually but there’s only so much the fare box can generate and much more is needed for the railway bridges and its 50-100 year old vehicles to remain viable.
