North York Moors Railway – February Half Term new updated timetable

Saturday 16th – Sunday 24th February 2013

It only feels 5 minutes ago that the kids were heading back to school after the Christmas holidays but the North Yorkshire Moors Railway is all set for February half term with a fun activity trail between Pickering and Grosmont.

With the help of Tracker Jack, the railway’s mascot visitors that complete the trail sheet will be in with a chance of winning one of 5 family vouchers to visit the railway again in 2013.

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is also changing its Grosmont departures to provide a better service for its passengers with a 10:30 departure replacing the 16:30. Danielle Ramsey, Marketing Manager said “the change to the service will allow passengers from Grosmont to make the most of their day out  on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway by providing an earlier departure than the current 12:30 offered.”

The Railway’s station tea rooms will be open and it’s a perfect excuse to stop for a scone and a cup of Yorkshire Tea before travelling up and down the line.

From 13:00 every day during the February Half term take up the special afternoon discount of reduced fares with adults and seniors travelling for £12, children at £6 and a family of 2 adults and up to 4 children traveling for £24.

Trains run every day between 16 – 24 February 2013,  a full day Pickering to Grosmont/Goathland day rover costs Adults £17.00, Concessions £15.00, Children £8.50 and a Family of 2 adults and up to 4 children £34.00.
