My Day in Photos | National Railway Museum, York

For my 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge, I’ve challenged myself to visit 10 new museums that I’ve never been to before. So, when me and Matt visited York last week and we found the National Railway Museum, we couldn’t resist!

This is, without a doubt, the best museum I’ve ever been to. It’s absolutely massive – well, it has to be with the amount and size of all those trains. Some of the wheels were actually taller than Matt, who’s 6ft… We saw the Eurostar, a bullet train, watched a train turntable demonstration, saw the trains and carriages that used to belong to the royal family and saw so many trains that were so large it’s hard to imagine or explain unless you see them with your own eyes. It was brilliant, I’m super glad we went and I’d definitely go again if we found ourselves back in York!

My camera battery actually died, because we also visited a vintage wedding fair that day and I took lots of photos there. Instead, I had to use my backup camera so I apologise for the slightly lower quality photos, but I just had to share them either way! Take a look:

  1. These are wonderful. The very first photo of the maroon(red) and black train, my first thought when I saw it was, Harry Potter’s train to Hogwarts. I have a online friend here in the states that is all about trains. I think I will share a link to this post to him. I am sure he would enjoy your photos. Thanks for sharing.

    • the blue engine in the background of one of the photo’s does look like “Thomas the Tank Engine” to me as well. Thanks for sharing as I will no doubt never get to see those! Loved them.

      • I’m really glad you liked them. It’s one of those experiences you’d never have unless you knew of such a place. Was surreal seeing the age of some of these trains – some belonged to royalty so long ago I’ve never heard of them.

  2. I thought that too, so I snapped the pic! I also saw a train that looked exactly like Thomas the Tank Engine but didn’t take a picture.
    That sounds like a great idea, thanks for sharing my post with your friend :).

  3. I agree – this museum is the best museum around. I’ve been so many times, I’ve lost count. My 16 year old grandson is a steam engine fanatic! We go all over the country to events and gala days – and regularly to York just in case they’ve added anything new. Funnily enough, I have a post about our last visit a few week’s ago still to do sometime. Your photos are great, backup camera or not! Sometimes it’s difficult to take photos in there because of all the lights reflecting in the shiny paint of the engines. πŸ™‚

      • I’ve spent a lot of the summer having days out, so I’ve got posts to keep me going for months! I’ve still got a few to do from my Malta holiday, so it may be a while before I post about York. I really enjoyed your post on it, and hope you do a few more like . Travel-type posts are always interesting. I love to see people’s photos. πŸ˜€

      • I enjoy seeing other’s photos too! Looking forward to Malta photographs, my family have always thought about visiting but we never got around to it.
        I have another photograph post planned for tomorrow, which should be interesting. We found a lot of bullets and bombs on a beach! πŸ™‚
