Yorkshire's Magnificent Journey

Delivering our £10 million future vision

Yorkshire’s Magnificent Journey is our £10 million project to ensure that future generations can continue to enjoy our magnificent 180 year old railway. Our seven initiatives will improve the experience and facilities for all our visitors and ensure that we have the volunteers, infrastructure and skills we need to operate for the next 50 years.

Our journey will take us to 2024 and has been possible thanks to generous funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the European Union, the Department of Environment, Farming and Rural Affairs, our Local Enterprise Partnership and kind donations from our many supporters.

Delivering a £9.2million project is no mean feat, and will require one of the greatest team efforts ever witnessed on the NYMR. Perhaps the most important member of that team is you, our loyal supporters, as without your financial support Yorkshire’s Magnificent Journey will remain a dream.

With so many facets to the project, we have assembled a team who will turn this grand plan of ours into a reality. Each element of the project has a dedicated work group and/or leader, whose job it will be to deliver what we promise and help guarantee the long-term sustainability of the railway.
