The North Yorkshire Moors Railway has resumed full services, with the return of its gold timetable itineraries, following a period of reduced services to avoid risk of lineside fires caused by the recent dry spell of weather.
General manager Chris Price said: “Working with our local stakeholders we took the decision last month to supplement our Steam Locomotive fleet with diesel engines assisting our trains, to minimise the risk of further fires. Now that we have finally had some rain, it’s great that we’re able to go back to our full steam service for the remainder of the summer holidays.”
As an added bonus for families enjoying fun-filled days out this summer, the NYMR, has also announced that from now until Sunday, September 4, children aged 4-15 years old can visit the award-winning attraction free of charge.
