National Railway Museum, York - Part 1.
Back in February, when we were off work, we decided to take a trip to somewhere other than Edinburgh or Newcastle for Jake's birthday. I love York and haven't been for a few years, Jake has never been, so that's where we went! Unfortunately, the weather was super bad, like proper chucking it down though with our first port of call being indoors we were able to spend more time than originally planned there. We went to the National Railway Museum and here is the first portion of the many, many photos I took...
These photos are all from the Station Hall and I think this part is my favorite. This hall was actually once a real working railway building and dates back to 1870. It's full of engines and carriages from way back in the 1800s up to the 1960s including many Royal carriages, set up like a real station with platforms - I love it! We really enjoyed exploring, being able to board some of the trains and as you can see taking lots of photos. I just snapped away with no real rhyme or reason so they are neither the best quality nor in the best order but we have them to remember our visit. I have a lot more too so look out for another part following soon!
