The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is Britain's most visited heritage railway. Steam locomotives take visitors through 18 miles of lovely countryside through one of the most beautiful National Parks in the country, the North York Moors National Park.

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway runs between the historic market town of Pickering and Grosmont near Whitby and is one of the world's oldest railway lines. Trains also call at the picturesque stations of Levisham and Goathland (Aidensfield in YTV's 'Heartbeat'). Passengers can disembark at any of the stations on route (also at Newton Dale on request) and enjoy one of the many attractive walks available in the area.
