Get ready to hop on board the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, because we've got something truly special in store. We have a one of a kind prize to win in our new raffle! For the price of a pint or a posh coffee, you could win our unique 50th Anniversary headboard – what a prize!

This is your chance to own a genuine piece of railway history. This headboard is a work of art, celebrating our remarkable 50-year journey through time. And guess what? You could be its next lucky owner. Headboards are a sought after bit of railwayana, they go on the front of locomotives, often bearing the name of the engine, or the service it is running. This headboard would connect you to the very heart of the NYMR, and that’s something very special. It was used on the 50th anniversary event, placed on the front of the first engine to run on the NYMR fifty years ago!

This raffle isn't just about winning a fantastic prize. It's about supporting the preservation of our beloved railway. Every £5 ticket bought helps us continue to provide unforgettable heritage railway experiences for generations to come.

So, what are you waiting for? Don't miss out on your change to own a piece of history. Get your raffle tickets today!
