Our aim is to restore at least part of the railway as a heritage attraction, working with all interested parties to enhance tourism in the area. This will be the only Heritage Railway in the East Riding of Yorkshire. We know the real benefits that similar projects (both small and large) bring to areas in other parts of the country and hope our region will be able to see these benefits too.
The YWR is now closed to the public for the 2016 season. Thank you for your support!
We will reopen on Sunday 16 April 2017!
We look forward to seeing you on site and show you the exciting work that will have been carried out by members over the Winter season.
