We travel on the 15.15 steam hauled departure for Goathland (15.35 ~ 16.00), where there will be time to view some of the rolling stock of the line before returning to Grosmont (16.15). The coaches will leave at 16.30 for Scarborough'.
Group 2: 'leaves the train at Malton and travels by coach to Pickering. There will be time for sight-seeing before joining the 14.45 diesel rail-car service for the return trip of nearly 36 miles over the whole length of the line. Passengers may change trains at Goathland to travel down to Grosmont on the following 16.00 steam hauled service. However, as this is likely to be crowded and will not allow any time to view the locomotives at Grosmont, you are advised to remain on the diesel rail car for the entire journey.
