The North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) is gearing itself up for a fun-filled winter season this December with Santa Specials, festive fayre served aboard a Pullman service, and the launch of its online Christmas shop; all great reasons to be merry.

Families looking to bring some Christmas magic to their little ones, should hop aboard a heritage steam engine on a 60-minute journey to help Santa and his elves save Christmas, which will operate on weekends in December, as well as 21st – 24th*. Departing from Pickering Station, visitors will catch a glimpse of Santa and enjoy festive entertainment from his helpers, before steaming along to Levisham Station as they help make toys for good girls and boys.

NYMR has also just released details of its Christmas Pullman dining experience and festive fayre menu. Guests can choose from smoked salmon parcels, chicken liver pate, festive turkey, roast topside of beef, not forgetting Christmas pud with hot rum sauce, amongst many other delectable dishes.

The Christmas Moorlander service departs from Grosmont station at 12.30pm on a variety of dates in December and January, with prices starting from £145 for a table of two. Further details can be found here .

Not forgetting NYMR’s online Christmas shop where you can pick up a gift of two for yourself or your loved ones this festive season, including specially designed baubles and Christmas cards featuring bespoke artwork from watercolour artist, Emma Ball, a selection of NYMR wall calendars and planners, and even festive themed t-shirts for the young and young at heart to wear. Take a look at these and more here and be safe in the knowledge that all funds will go directly to the charity to help it keep steaming through to 2021.

Due to Covid-19 control measures** and to help the railway maintain capacity, pre-booking is essential, so book now by visiting – Yule be glad you did!

*Trains will depart from Pickering at 09:15, 11:15, 13.15 and 15:15 on December 5 and 6, 12 and 13, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24th. Tickets are priced at £100 per compartment (for up to  four people), and £25 per additional adult . Compartment holds a max of six total adult or child.

**Since the railway reopened on 1st August, a number of Covid-19 control measures have been implemented, including limiting capacity on trains, Zoono ‘fogging’ carriages and public spaces, enhanced cleaning regimes, hand sanitiser stations and contactless payments for all refreshment and retail purchases.
