The Whitby and Pickering Railway (W&P) was built to halt the gradual decline of the port of Whitby on the east coast of England. Its basic industries, whaling and shipbuilding, had been in decline and it was believed that opening transport links inland would help regenerate the town and port. Until the turnpike to Pickering was opened in 1759, Whitby was better connected to the rest of the country by sea than by land; even then the difficult climb over the high moors was an obstacle. Stage coach services did not start until 1795 and Mail Coaches (thrice weekly) until 1823. The Whitby and Pickering Railway opened in stages in 1836 (one of the earliest railways in Yorkshire) and was worked by a horses until it was absorbed into the York and North Midland Railway in 1845 and was converted into a conventional double tracked steam-worked railway.
