The North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) is already gearing up for its mesmerising Light Spectacular event, which

takes place during October and November. Tickets are now on sale for this captivating steam train experience which departs

twice nightly at 6pm and 7.45pm from Pickering Station, every evening from

27th October to 5th November and 10th to 12th November 2023.

The hugely popular, hour-long, illuminated journey is an immersive audio and visual experience pulled by a steam

train adorned with 17,000 LEDs. Tickets for this must-see (and hear) experience include an hour-long illuminated

journey between Pickering and Levisham station.

When groups arrive, you’re given a flashing wristband which synchronises with the on-board lightshow and music which

will have you singing and dancing in your seats. If that’s not enough, the entertainment by the NYMR’s onboard

compere, TV’s ‘Voice Over Man’ will ensure everyone is in the mood to party.


With carriages covered in thousands of LEDs, from the moment your group enters the platform, spots the train and then

climbs on board, you’ll be fully immersed in colour, light and sound.
Luke Hudman, Marketing Manager at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway explains, “It’s a fantastic event that has a real

‘wow’ factor and just makes everyone gasp and smile from the moment you seethe train arrive at the

platform - even the grown-ups! It’s so impressive - seeing the faces of families light up is a highlight in our events calendar

each year. It’s a great way to end our main running season and we’ve already had lots of enquiries, so I recommend you

book your tickets early!”
