Get the train from Dewsbury to Leeds, then the No. 840 bus from Leeds goes to Pickering and Goathland, the steam train then goes from Pickering to Goathland.

Hmm Dewsbury to Leeds is about a £5 return.

Sorry to be nosey, but why are you staying in Dewsbury, are you visiting friends and family (as not really on the tourist routes)

The 840 is the coastliner http://www.yorkbus.co.uk/ not sure on prices.

However, it may be easy to train from Dewsbury to York and then pick up the 840 in York.

I think the 840 stops in Goathland and Pickering. Steam train runs between the two.

For West Yorkshire buses and trains see http://www.wymetro.com if travelling in West Yorkshire it is just as cheap to buy cheap day returns etc, however they do operate day and metro rover, which gives unlimited travel on buses and trains in west yorkshire for a day, family or individual see here wymetro.com/TicketsAndPasses/moresavings/Wes…

for general UK train info/pre booking tickerts check out http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/ or http://www.eastcoast.co.uk/

Hope this helps.

You'll find the Coastliner ticket prices here:

yorkbus.co.uk/cmsUploads/fareType/files/Coas…

It is easier to train all the way to York because the Caostliner goes from York rail station and in Leeds you have to walk to the bus station (not miles but still further) and you can train direct from Dewsbury to York (Transpennine Express)

It'll be cheaper for you just to use the Coastliner all the way to Whitby, I would think as the NYR is quite expensive.

When you get to Goathland call down to the Birch Inn in Beck Hole I know you will enjoy the visit

a quicker alternative if timed right is train Dewsbury to Malton (usually involves a change at York to the Scarborough train) and catch the 840 from there. Only 3 or so 840s a day to Whitby whether from Leeds, York or Malton. Further alternative is train (or bus, slower, 843 from Leeds or York) all the way to Scarborough then bus to Whitby which runs about once per hour. Train alternative all the way to Whitby is via Middlesbrough and very slow if scenic and only 3 or so trains a day to Whitby. I would save the NYMR for a special trip rather than as a means of reaching Whitby from Dewsbury. as an aside it is unfortunate that most Scarborough trains actually go through Dewsbury, but do not stop there! Newcastle trains do stop but then change needed preferably at York.
