The NYMR has partnered with popular heritage railway magazine, Steam Railway, to create ’Just The Ticket’, a series of themed videos to launch alongside this summer’s Love Your Railway campaign.

The six videos, covering each of the Love Your Railway’s weekly themes - History, Conservation, Partnerships, Family, Volunteers and Education - will be hosted by Steam Railway Magazine, and feature guest contributions from heritage railways across the UK.

We’re really pleased to be helping our friends at the NYMR and working with lots of other heritage lines for these Just The Ticket videos. It’s not only a lot of fun hearing about what goes on behind the scenes at our preserved lines, but also what motivates those who work on them.

I’d love to hear from anyone else who wants to take part – there’s always room! Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our railways, and celebrating what they do is a message we need to get over. Chris Gilson, Steam Railway Editor.

Following the enormous success in 2021, the second annual ‘Love Your Railway’ campaign will bring together organisations from as far afield as Scotland, Snowdonia, Leighton Buzzard and the Lake District (see full list) to shine a spotlight on heritage railway organisations and the important work they do with regards to conservation, education and research.

It’s great to have Steam Railway Magazine on board for this year’s Love your Railway campaign. This new video mini-series is a great opportunity to highlight some of the outstanding and often unsung contributions that are made within the heritage railway sector.

We’re really looking forward to hearing some of the stories and introducing you to the people behind the achievements which span the past 70 years of heritage preservation. If you are taking part in the Love Your Railway campaign, please get in touch with Chris. Luke Hudman, NYMR Marketing Manager.

Spearheaded by NYMR, ‘Love Your Railway’ is a six-week campaign which runs over the summer holidays from 25th July to 4th September.

Participating railways who would like to contribute to the video mini-series can email [email protected] for more information. Once released you'll be able to watch the videos via Steam Railway Magazine social media pages or at
