National Railway Museum, York
This evening, I am focusing on the National Railway Museum in York, England.
York is one of England's top tourist destinations which is located about 220 miles north of London.There are also grand houses and other visitor attractions within range of York.
This Railway Museum dates back over 90 years and now ranks as the world’s largest such facility. Inside can be found a wide range of railway history including powerful steam locomotives, carriages, Royal trains, freight locomotives and prestige engines such as the Mallard (fastest steam locomotive), Duchess of Hamilton, Shinkansen Bullet Train and the Flying Scotsman.
In addition to the railway locomotives and rolling stock there is a warehouse with 8000 rail related objects and a workshop gallery where maintenance can be observed.
Above and below can viewed a selection of images from the Museum. Entry is free. A very worthwhile visitor attraction to include in the wide range of sites to see in York which span nearly 2000 years of history.
