Platform 4 at the NRM in York

19 members visited the National Railway Museum in York on Maundy Thursday and spent an enjoyable few hours among the locomotives, carriages and paraphernalia of Railways past and, indeed, present. Locomotives ranged in size from the diminutive narrow-gauge “Wren” to the massive 4-8-4 Chinese Government Railways KF class, which was built at the Vulcan Foundry in Lancashire.
