The National Railway Museum in York has an unparalleled collection of railway exhibits.

From the earliest days of the railway pioneers to the very latest in railway technology, there’s something for everyone.

The National Railway Museum in York is the world’s largest railway museum.

The national collection from Rocke replica to Mallard is all on display to the general public.

The Japanese bullet train is also well worth a visit, evoking thoughts of the past, present and on to the future of rail travel.

The Works is the latest addition to the Museum and offers three new galleries to explore: The Workshop, The Working Railway and The Warehouse.

Each one features rare and fascinating displays and objects from the National Collection, many of which have never been seen before.

With the finest collections of Royal coaches in the world, dating back to the Victorian era, as well as interactive opportunities and a miniature railway, there is plenty to see and do for all ages.

Enjoy the programme and maybe take a visit.

In this hour long DVD, Lucy Adlington takes you on a privileged tour of the Museum.

Compare the intricacy of the London & North Eastern Railway’s Dynamometer car with the splendour of the Edwardian Pullman coach and the functional simplicity of the Travelling Post Office.
