Reasons for trip

Return to the age of Agatha Christie, the glamour, the nostalgia,with a trip in a steam train and authentic carriages from Pickering to Grosmont through the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside. No worries about parking,the railway has a large car park adjacent to the station, charging five pounds for the day, so you can change trains at Grosmont and travel to the coast at Whitby for a day at the coast or have a wander around picturesque Pickering on your return. We travelled on a family ticket with considerable saving and picked up our tickets at the station. The family ticket 2 adults and two children for forty pounds. The grandchildren were mesmerised by the engine, it’s noise, slightly scary, and the smoke. We alighted at Grosmont,where we found a friendly cafe with a garden and a cat called Tinker,who provided entertainment for the children, before returning on another steam train back to Pickering. Our young charges fell asleep in the car on the way home. Altogether a delightful day. Thank you to the volunteer staff who run the railway.
