Through the Decades on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway

Head to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway to be transported back to the 1940s, 50s, 60s and 70s, where each era’s music, fashion and spirit will come alive. Put on your dancing shoes, don your vintage togs and enjoy a weekend of nostalgia.

Pickering Station – Head back to the 1940s at Pickering to pay homage to the decade when the four major rail operators were amalgamated into British Railways, the formation of the NHS and the 1948 London Olympics were all in the headlines, along with trade stands and period displays.

Levisham Station – Stop off at rural Levisham Station and be transported to the 1950s with an agricultural engine display and vintage tractors.

Goathland Station – Grab a ticket to ride to Goathland and feel the vibrant energy and spirit of the 1960s as you go on a nostalgic journey through one of the most influential decades in history with live music on Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy a display of 60s classic vehicles, children’s activities and live music. There will also be a selection of ales available from the tearoom, and a visit wouldn’t be the same without a walk into the village to see where the popular TV show Heartbeat was set. Also, there will be a family station trail and opportunity to see the temporary exhibition in the new Learning Coach on the history of the railway.

Grosmont Station – Dust off your bell bottoms as you groove through the disco era of the 1970s with live music on Saturday and Sunday. To coincide with the NYMR’s 50th Anniversary, Grosmont Station will also have a photographic display with information on the history and opening day of the railway.
