Little & Large Dvd: North Yorkshire Moors Railway Dvd, Part 1
The North Yorkshire Moors Railway first opened in 1836 as the Whitby and Pickering Railway, the railway was planned in 1831 by George Stephenson as a means of opening up trade routes inland from the then important seaport of Whitby.
The railway was first designed and built to be used by horse drawn carriages.
Today, the North Yorkshire Moors Railway is one of the UK’s longest preserved railways, running 18 miles from Pickering to Grosmont with some services continuing to Whitby.
Steam trains run frequently calling at Pickering, Levisham, Newtondale Halt, Goathland and Grosmont passing through picturesque scenery across the North Yorkshire Moorland.
