Railway Conservation. Run by Volunteers. Not for Profit.
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.
