  • Travelled from Whitby to Pickering on the steam train and stopped off here for an hour on the return journey. Very well kept and a step back in time. Worth a visit and a trip on the steam train.
  • Lovely little place. Very jealous of the young blonde lassy who's got herself a job on the train. Covered in grease in her big black boots pulling levers and shovelling coal, made me super jealous. What a time she must have at work!
  • Nice family day out. Coffee on train very acceptable. People who run it clearly care.
  • Great private railway station. Featured in the Harry Potter films, look out for Hagrid!
  • Steam train rides, nice little station, short walk from goathland (aidensfield) village of heartbeat fame
