National Railway Museum, York - Part 3


In the last post of this mini-series from our trip to The National Railway Museum in York (way back in February :O), I'm sharing a few photos from the Warehouse area and a couple odd snaps from the Workshop. 
The works (workshop) is where you can see engineers actually working on the maintenance of locomotives etc, read more here and back in 2010 they had the Hogwarts Castle here being cleaned!

The warehouse is simply an area used to house thousands of interesting bits and pieces but is open for people to have a wander around, similar to the one at Beamish if you have been there. 



As you can see from the 1st photo, one of the first and most exciting things I spotted in the warehouse was the sign to platform 9 and 3/4! I can only assume that this has been kept from the time when the Hogwarts Castle was housed here for a while before it being moved to it's home at the Warner Brothers Studio Tour. (I have lots of up to date photos of it in it's current home which you will see in a few weeks in my 'The Making of Harry Potter' series'!)
Another thing we had fun doing was spotting anything and everything to do with Northumberland and the North haha, as you may be able to tell from the photos of the signs.

Make sure to check out the first two parts of our day at NRM York and let me know your thoughts on this awesome museum!

  5. That's really cool that you can watch the people working on the trains. I quite like the idea of a warehouse in a museum, just for all the odds and sods and then you can just wander about. I'll have to visit York one day!
