Want to learn the secrets behind the world’s most popular steam railway? Switch on to Channel 5 and you can!

‘All Aboard the Yorkshire Express’, a three part documentary series commissioned by DSP, part of the Endemol Shine Group, will take viewers behind the scenes at the award-winning North Yorkshire Moors Railway, as it celebrates its fiftieth anniversary this year.

The North Yorkshire Moors Railways granted unprecedented access to DSP, whose co-managing directors Emily Dalton and Donna Clark, describe the show as “a real celebration of the extraordinary heritage and traditions of the country’s railways”.

A special preview will be aired at Welcome to Yorkshire’s ‘Yorkshire on Show’, the UKs biggest on-stage tourism show on Wednesday 21st March, whilst Channel 5 will air the series in a primetime slot later in the year.

Earlier this year, the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) awarded NYMR £4.6M as part of the £9.2M Sustainability Project, NYMR’s Yorkshire’s Magnificent Journey Appeal. To deliver the investment programme, the NYMR must raise approx. £2.5M from members, passengers and the public over the next five years. To pledge your support in 2018 please visit nymr.co.uk/YMJ
