ALL ABOARD THE OPTIMIST…

FOR A SEASIDE TRIP TO WHITBY

ALL ABOARD THE OPTIMIST…

After a hugely successful opening weekend, the first of the 2020 operating season, North Yorkshire Moors Railway has now opened up bookings for a newly named service that will enable passengers to journey all the way along the 24-mile heritage line, directly to Whitby.

Anyone planning a visit to the popular attraction from 17th – 30th August is now able to depart twice daily on ‘The Optimist’ a non-stop journey from Pickering to Whitby*, with ample time to explore the historic seaside town, before embarking on the journey back to Pickering station.

Chris Price General Manager said “Our initial plan was to get the railway operational and we now feel that we can progress to phase two of our plans with our newly named service; ‘The Optimist’. Easing of social distancing and our enhanced cleaning measures have allowed us to create this new journey to allow our passengers to once again travel the full length of the line and explore the town that’s famed for its prominence in Bram Stoker’s Dracula; Whitby.”

To ensure social distancing measures continue to be adhered to for guests, tickets must be pre-booked online before visiting.
