THE North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) is offering a fun-filled day out for summer visitors.

To celebrate the school holidays, SR No. 926 “Repton“ will be back running along the heritage line, making a return after an extensive overhaul.

She has been running in her British Railways colours and numbering as 30926, but will return to traffic in Southern Railways Olive Green under her old number 926.

Laura Strangeway, head of marketing at the NYMR, said: “The school holidays are a fantastic time for all the family to come and experience the age of steam.

"The railway is a great place for children to journey behind these powerful engines and learn how they work with ‘Peters Railway Young Engineers Centre’ at Pickering and the engine sheds at Grosmont.”

This year, the railway has already hosted its fair share of successful events, the most recent being the new bigger and better 60s Fest last month.

Still to come is the Annual Steam Gala from September 29 to October 1, Railway In Wartime October 13 to 15 and a spook-tacular Halloween Train from October 26–29.
