Special Events on the North Yorkshire Moors

Next weekend (Friday 17th June - Sunday 19th June) sees the stations along the North Yorkshire Moors Railway transform back to the Seventies with it's 70's Heritage Diesel Gala.

At Levisham Station you can rock back to the 70's with returning band The Glamned who are being supported by Monty Scott (who apparently looks a little like Leo Sayer.....depending on who you ask!)  There will be a real ale bar available so you can enjoy a little light refreshment as you pass through!

They will be rocking out the tunes from the 70's on Saturday and Sunday between 12pm and 4pm.

At Goathland, DJ Lynn will be spinning the discs from the 70's across the whole weekend for you to enjoy.

At Pickering station, new for this year, there will be a 1970's pop up museum which will be on display in the Learning Centre on Platform 2.  There will also be several stalls selling all sorts of pictures and images over the weekend.

Refreshments will be available at both stations throughout the weekend.  There will also be a display of classic vehicles at both stations.

Fancy dress is highly encouraged!!

Entry to the music is free if you have a valid travel ticket for that day, or you can pay a £5 platform charge per person.

Visiting Engines over the weekend will be:

Class 55 'Pinza' 55022 (running as 55007) (Deltic locomotive) Beaver Sports (Yorks) ltd

Class 26 'Tom Clift' 26038 6DLA Group

DJ Lynn will be spinning the decks again but this time at Pickering!

Pickering will also have 60's memorabilia on display in the pop up museum from 29th June through until 3rd July.


If you are a fanatic of classic cars and vehicles, then this is the weekend for you!  You can look back on your motoring memories from the past in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors.  Levisham, Goathland and Grosmont will be showcasing a spectacular display of classic cars, vehicles and motorbikes throughout the weekend.

There will also be miniature traction engines on display at Levisham.

So if you love the 60's, 70's or are a fan of classic cars, then make sure you pay the North Yorkshire Moors Railway a visit over the next few weekends and revel in the past!!  Don't forget to don your glad rags as fancy dress is highly recommended for all events!
