Details

Steam in to a fantastic weekend with the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) will host its Annual Steam Gala from Friday 28th September to Sunday 30th September, with a combination of guest locomotives and our home fleet in steam over the weekend.

During the weekend stations along the line will be hosting exciting events of their own such as the Autumn Steam Gala Beer Festival which sees Levisham and Goathland offering a wide selection of real ales from local breweries such as Brass Castle, Helmsley Brewing Co, Baytown and many more.

North Yorkshire Moors Railway is one of the most historic lines in the North of England, taking visitors on picturesque journeys along an 18-mile railway line aboard steam and heritage diesel trains.

For regular news, updates and competitions, the attraction is also on Facebook and Twitter.
