THE North Yorkshire Moors Railway returns to our TV screens on Friday.

The heritage railway will star in third series of The Yorkshire Steam Railway: All Aboard, on Channel 5, which begins on Friday, February 21, at 8pm.

Viewers will be follow the same lovable cast of characters doing their best to keep Britain’s busiest steam railway on track.

In this season there is more drama, more humour and more magnificent steam engines - all set against the glorious backdrop of North Yorkshire.

There is record crowds for a record number of engines at the annual steam gala. Elsewhere Bert’s still on platform duty, with his inimitable boyish enthusiasm, and Gill and Sam are still bickering on the Pullman Dining train. But no matter what disasters befall the railway everything seems to come good in the end.
