The North Yorkshire Moors Railway’s (NYMR) CEO, Chris Price, is to leave the heritage railway after eight years, to take up a new role in Dorset.

Since joining the team in 2015, Chris has navigated the railway through many changes and milestones - through the uncertainty of Covid-19, securing £4.6m from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) as part of its £9.2m Sustainability Project, NYMR's Yorkshire's Magnificent Journey Appeal.

Earlier this year, Chris welcomed King Charles III on his first public appointment as Monarch and played a key part in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the heritage railway.

Over the years, Chris has shown immense support and dedication, with a commitment to the role which has contributed to the bright future of the railway.

Chris Price said: “It has been a pleasure and a privilege to be part of such a fantastic team of dedicated volunteers and staff.

"My time at the NYMR has been full of fun and hard work, but it has always paid off.

"Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the NYMR this year has been incredibly rewarding and exciting and I know that the future of the railway will continue to be bright.
