The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is one of Britain's most travelled steam railways, carrying over 300,000 passengers a year. The 18-miles of its own railway from Pickering to Grosmont, together with the short section over the National Rail Network from Grosmont to Whitby, provides challenges for the locomotive and outstanding views for the passenger.

This programme charts the steam action on the railway between 2000 and 2009, covering the variety of locomotives that have worked the 'Moors' line in that time, together with their history.

Filmed over the ten year period, the programme features both resident and visiting engines with over 35 different steam locomotives seen hard at work. An informed, but unobtrusive commentary allows the viewer to see and hear the fleet in action.
