For the inside track on the best journeys, the train operator asked colleagues to share their favourite routes to work on – and two in North Yorkshire made the list.

Among those included was Middlesborough to Whitby, which sees the train winding its way through the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, providing passengers with views of rolling hills, ancient woodlands and coastal scenery.

A spokesperson said: “Whether it's for leisurely day trips or exploring the rugged beauty of the North Yorkshire coastline, it showcases the region's natural splendour and rich heritage.”
