North Yorkshire Moors Railway is the perfect destination as it hosts its Annual Steam Gala from Friday September 29 to Sunday October 1.

The heritage railway is home to a fabulous fleet of steam locomotives, but over this special weekend it will boast some new faces, such as 5199 from Llangollen Railway, along with 1501 and 7714 from the Severn Valley Railway.

During the weekend stations along the line will be hosting events such as the Autumn Steam Gala Beer Festival at Levisham and Goathland. Peter’s Railway author Chris vine will be signing books at Pickering Station. Tickets at nymr.co.uk/annual-steam-gala
