Railway History in York

By Linda Tancs

Billed as the world’s largest railway collection, the National Railway Museum in York, England, brings to life centuries of locomotive history. It’s also where they brought to life the Flying Scotsman, restoring it to its former glory and offering it for special passenger tours across the U.K. Boasting a collection of over 1 million railway-related objects, the facility hosts Mallard (the world’s fastest steam engine), a replica of George Stephenson’s Rocket (a pioneering steam locomotive invention) and the only bullet train known to exist outside Japan.
