All aboard for Christmas & New Year on the NYM Railway!

The North York Moors Railway is adding a special touch of magic to this coming Christmas & New Year season, with a special Santa Express Services on its picturesque line. An extra special treat for all the family which will get the festivities off to a flying start and add to the whole excitement of this enchanting time of year.

Santa and his helpers will be out and about from the end of November through to the 22nd of December at Whitby, Grosmont and Pickering Stations to ensure that all their passengers, whatever age, enjoy this delightful and unique Christmas experience.Steaming along through the breathtaking winter scenery of the North York Moors aboard these wonderful and nostalgic engines has to be one of the most memorable experiences of Christmastime.

On board each of the trains the younger members of the family can meet Santa and collect a surprise gift in his magical grotto. There will be hot and cold drinks, delicious mince pies and a little festive tipple to warm the hearts of the older members of the group served on board the Whitby Express, and also served on the platforms at Pickering and Grosmont.

A brilliant idea for groups of friends to meet up for that pre Christmas get together, to relax and take in this very special atmosphere before some serious shopping or local entertainment.

If you cant make the Christmas specials, then fear not, as The North York Moors Railway have a full schedule of special events planned for the New Year, commencing with Teddy Bear Week on the 15th to the 23rd February 2014.

There are numerous hotels and self catering establishments in this popular area where special offers and group deals make it an ideal place to get away from it all and spend Christmas and the New Year with loved ones.
