National Railway Museum

York is one of the principal railway junctions in England, with an impressive station with curving glass and iron train sheds of 1872-7, and the imposing early 20th century headquarters building of the former North Eastern Railway.


The National Railway Museum is located in onetime railway buildings, including a locomotive shed and a freight depot. There is a comprehensive but changing collection of British locomotives and carriages, together with important exhibits relating to early railways, many models, and displays incorporating historic archive films.
