  • Loved it went on the santa express with the kids. All run by volunteers a great piece of history not to be missed. Kids were fascinated not seen them have so much fun for a long time. I couldn't give the staff enough praise. Thank you for a fun filled day.
  • To travel on a steam hauled train is always a good experience. It took me back to my school days! This line offers time to relax and enjoy as it covers a fair distance between Whitby and Pickering (both towns worth visiting in their own right). Lots to see on the beautiful journey. Stations are worth a mooch around. Guide book is very well laid out and not very expensive.
