The National Railway Museum


THE WORLDS LARGEST RAILWAY MUSEUM The National Railway Museum is the largest of its kind in the world, boasting a host of record-breakers and history-makers, and attracting around 740,000 visitors each year. The railways revolutionised the way we live and originated here in the North East of England. York is therefore the ideal place for the NRM to care for the nation's railway-related heritage and to tell the story of the train - past, present and future. The NRM is home to a wide range of railway icons and literally millions of artefacts, from Mallard - the world's fastest steam engine - to a lock of Robert Stephenson's hair. Many of the Museum's vast collection of over 100 locomotives and engines are on display in the Great Hall, helping to illustrate the development of the railways from Rocket to Eurostar. Permanent displays include the jewel in our crown - Palaces on Wheels. Based in the Station Hall, this exhibition features Royal saloons dating back to the Victorian times.
