THE North Yorkshire Moors Railway has announced its summer ticket rates.

Family tickets are £88 for two adults and two children, with individual adult tickets £43 each and children aged between four to 15 travelling for just £1.

Tickets for the award-winning attraction are now on sale and to purchase online.

The line is largely run by volunteers, who are inviting people to hop on board the Seaside Special from Pickering to Whitby, with services departing from 9.20am and 12pm from Monday to Saturday.

A return journey hauled by heritage steam and diesel trains visitors travels through 24 miles of spectacular scenery across the North York Moors National Park arriving at the seaside in Whitby in an hour and 50 minutes.

There are shorter journeys on the Moors Explore which stops to explore the village stations of Goathland, the ever popular filming location, or Grosmont, where the NYMR engine sheds are based.

A spokesperson said: "What’s more, as a charity and accredited museum, all the income from visits, including ticket sales, catering and retail, goes towards helping ensure that the NYMR keeps steaming on into the future. Please make sure to visit the website for journey times on a Sunday."
