This is part of the National Railway Museum at York. Among the interesting exhibits in a Crusader tank on a warflat, a snowplough, and the loco that pulled Winston Churchill's funeral train. more »
This exhibition is well worth a visit. Locos, carriages and wagons are from the earliest to the latest days of railway history, including a surviving tilting train and a Battle of Britain locomotive. ... more »
Wonderful trains to look at great for young and old has great pushchair/wheelchair access and all for a donation! Also has craft tables and a small play area if the kids get bored of the trains! Also a reasonably priced cafe for a well deserved cuppa!
Qualifies as nothing less than a religious experience for Steam enthusiasts. Easy to call into when heading from A1 to A68. Nice cafe, great model railway shop with unique (NRM) models available. Convenient parking and easy access by rail. Exhibits change regularly. Timothy Hackworth Museum is at the other end of the railway track. Steam is used on special days.
If, like me, you have a son mad on trains then this is a great place to spend an hour or two on a rainy (or sunny) day. They have a train running that goes up and down a single track, takes about 10-15 minutes for £3. The train shed display is impressive (usually about 15 steam/diesel trains and carriages) and the cafe is ok. There's a small shop attached with train memorabilia which is pricey. Parking is free and close by, though if there's a special event on it's worth getting there early.
Plenty of train exhibits to look at. Excellent facilities for toilets and cafe. Most enjoyable visit
Very Popular Historical venue with live steam railway. Railway exhibits and various gallery displays through the year OK different topics. an extension of National Railway Museum York. FREE ACCESS and car parking.
