Everything is on track for an action-packed season, as the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) announces its daily services and calendar of events for 2022, which run from Monday 4th April.
Tickets season are on sale now.
This year, the NYMR is operating an end-to-end service between Pickering to Whitby, but can also accommodate shorter journeys from both Pickering and Whitby.
Prices for a full line ticket start from £20.50 for children and £41 for adults and £84 for a family.
Laura Strangeway, Director of Corporate Services, said: “After nearly two years of trials and tribulations (due to Covid) we couldn’t be more excited to once again welcome visitors back for a season of special events, incredible journeys through the picturesque national park and memories that will last a lifetime.
“Over the upcoming months we are working behind the scenes and preparing for the 2022 season. Conversations with stakeholders including Pickering Town Council are due to take place over the upcoming weeks on how we can host a Railway in Wartime event in October.
“The impact of the pandemic has led to a substantial drop in volunteer resources. Additionally, we are nervous about any future restrictions and managing large-scale events. More details will be released on our website over the next few months.”
“We still really encourage visitors to pre-book their tickets enabling them a guaranteed seat for both the outward and return journeys, but some walk-ups tickets are available and, thanks to the hard work and endless support from our volunteers and staff, the engines, stations, shops and tea rooms at the railway have never looked better.
