    Steam Train

    We got a family day rover ticket (£26 in 2003), which may seem expensive, but these things are expensive to keep running, and we thought it was well worth the money.
    You will usually get a steam engine to pull you, but there are some difficulties during very dry spells when a diesel engine will be substituted. We don't consider ourselves to be 'train buffs', but the excitement is infectious. The kids loved it.
    Each of their carriages have been rescued and renovated from old rolling stock. The quality of the carriages varies considerably, but there is nothing to stop you getting up and moving along the train from carriage to carriage as much as you like. For those in your thirties like me, or older, you may remember some of the carriages.
    The scenery around here is fantastic, and you get to see the best of it by train.

    Yorkshire Coastliner

    Me in front of the Coastliner

    I think the best way to get to Goathland is travelling with the Yorkshire Coastliner, which I did. The Coastliner leaves from Leeds into York and heads towards Whitby. It takes about one hour and 40 minutes from York.

    If you're only way of getting there is via public transport....... you've got a choice of either the Superb YORKSHIRE COASTLINER 840 service going from Leeds/York/Malton to Whitby and back..... or you can take a Train ride on the preserved Steam locomotives (and occasional preserved Diesel loco) operated by the 18mile North Yorkshire Moors Railway

    Coastliner

    Waiting for the bus...

    These fellas slept by the village bus stop. The bus in question is the Yorkshire Coastliner which gets to Goathland frequently from either Whitby in the east or Leeds/York in the west. The buses also stop in Malton and Pickering on the way and I have to say it is one of the best countryside transport companies I have ever seen in England.
