The North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) has announced a new two-tiered ticketing system for its upcoming 2023 season, which will see the introduction of a 12-month annual pass. Visitors will be able to pay £45.00 and visit as many times, for up to 12 months, on standard timetables services only.

From April 2023, NYMR will remove child and family fares and peak/off-peak pricing, replacing them with two adult prices - a headline fare for £45, valid for 12 months along the full length of the line, and a single-use shorter journey fare price for 1 Station - £12.00 per adult (16+) and free for children (0-15) and 2 Stations - £22.50 per adult (16+) and free for children (0-15).

Laura Strangeway, Director of Corporate Services at NYMR, commented: “Since the pandemic we have had to adapt our ticketing model to fall in line with restrictions. Heritage railways were not designed to accommodate social distancing, limited capacity and timetable restrictions. Due to this, our timetable and ticketing have become increasingly tricky to manage and maintain. We’ve listened to our visitors and simplified the offering with the view to providing better value for money, enabling more visitors to access the railway and see the full works of the charity.

“Not only will more people be able to access and use the railway, we are encouraging our visitors to Gift Aid at no extra cost to help relieve some of the pressures from our day-to-day operation.

“As we prepare for the new season, our principal message is still the same - the NYMR is a place where people can come and explore the rich industrial, cultural and natural heritage - a committed railway charity that does more than just move people.”

The NYMR 2023 season restarts on 27th March 2023 with tickets live from Wednesday 8 March, with services running every day up to 5th November 2023; for more information go to
