This village of two halves was largely created to house the men who worked on the Whitby to Pickering railway in the mid-19th century. Although it was closed in the 1960s during the Beeching era, a band of enthusiasts revived it and transformed it into the private, steam-powered North York Moors Railway.

The line still cuts through the village and the station has been given some lovely historical touches. There is also access to the engine sheds. The line is connected here to the Esk Valley railway which takes passengers to Whitby and Middlesbrough.
