I can confidently say out of all railway museums we’ve visited so far, the National Railway Museum (NRM) in York is the most impressive. With over 100 locomotives and over 300 other items of rolling stock on display over 20 acres (8.1 ha), it’s huge.

Seattle followed Vancouver on our 2016 America rail adventure. It’s main attraction for us was the Museum of Flight, also known as ‘the Boeing museum’. We’ll cover that one separately. But it made me think of a theme for this blogpost: past future.
