There are two other events. One of which is the Murder Mystery train, this starts in July and ends in August.
The Murder Mystery train also offers a three-course meal at the same price as the Escape Room train. The options are salmon, vegetarian or pork.
The York-Durham Heritage Railway states, “these Presentations are hosted by the Society’s brilliant scientists, as an opportunity to show off their most wondrous ideas. The night may prove to be as deadly as it is enlightening.”
The last specialized train is the Thomas the Tank Engine ride for children, which starts in August and is running at different times between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The York-Durham Heritage Railway states, “Thomas fans and their families will have a unique opportunity to climb aboard a heritage train pulled by a life-size working replica of Thomas the Tank Engine for a 25-minute train ride. Each child will receive a junior engineer certificate after the train ride as a souvenir.”
The Escape Room and Murder Mystery train leaves at 6:30 p.m and comes back at 9:30 p.m from Uxbridge and travels around the York-Durham region.
