The Yorkshire Wolds Railway Restoration Project was formed in October 2008, exactly 50 years after closure of the Malton to Driffield line.
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.

As part of the project, our research has turned up hundreds of images and some incredible stories from the past which we are sharing through this site.
