The National Railway Museum of Britain, just east of Yorke Railway Station, has a special directive passage inside the station. It takes only a few minutes to walk to the museum. This is the world's largest train museum. As the birthplace of trains, the National Railway Museum contains the largest steam-powered locomotives in the world, the Royal Hunting Car used by Queen Victoria and Edward VII, the European Star, the Shinkansen Line of Japan and so on. The exhibition reflects the development process of Railways in Britain and even the world. The museum is free and worth seeing.
Britain is the birthplace of trains. In 1877, Yorke was already an important railway hub in the north of England. The railway station is also the largest in the world. So there is also a famous National Railway Museum and one of the largest railway museums in the world. The museum is free to visit, and staff at the entrance have the layout of the hair Museum and the tour route map. It is suggested to take a copy, because there are two venues, which are not close together. If it weren't for this, we might have missed another venue! When James Watt built his first single-action steam engine in Glasgow in 1776, he didn't think he would lead history. Maybe many people don't know that James Watt is Scottish. In 1814, born in an ordinary miner's family, George Stephenson built the world's first steam locomotive entirely on self-taught talent. At that moment, the two foundations of the industrial revolution, iron and steam, were finally perfectly integrated. The enormous power generated by them enabled the British Empire to take the lead in the industrialization of all other human beings. The Museum has nearly one million exhibits, retaining a large number of locomotives or replicas manufactured in the early and mid-19th century, with the largest number of locomotive exhibits in the world. In another venue stands the statue of Stephenson, the father of the steam locomotive. The Museum has the largest steam-powered locomotive in the world. There is also a steam engine named Mallard, which set a world record in 1938 when the speed was 203 kilometers per hour. In those days, the speed was really amazing.
The National Railway Museum in Yorkshire, Yorkshire, is not far from our hotel. It's ten minutes'drive and very convenient for parking. The museum is free to visit. We volunteered to raise money and bought brochures and souvenirs, totaling about 50 pounds. Among them are our high-speed rail, but the length of introducing the British Railway and the Shinkansen Line in Japan is larger than that of our high-speed rail. It's absolutely worthwhile to recommend a visit.
Yorkshire British Railway National Museum is also one of the must-come attractions. It shows the splendor of British railway history. It exhibits a large number of old locomotives of different periods, which are very beautiful and shocking. It can be seen that the British railway is so brilliant that it is worthy of the sunset empire of that year, but also a little sad. Few works of modern railway show the whole. The decline of national power.
As the birthplace of trains in Britain, the treasures in the National Railway Museum seem to tell us a history of railway development. From the oldest steam train to the Shinkansen Line in Japan, this important invention in human history has changed our lives. So many railway fans have gathered here to visit.
Museums in Britain, large and small, I recommend them very much. They are basically free, but the contents are very substantial. Every time I go to a museum, I press a commemorative coin. It's a donate. It's highly recommended by the Railway Museum. Friends of train control can't miss it.
The staff here feel happy every day. Especially the train-loving companions in the restaurant can stay here for one day. The queen train in the South Hall is more attractive. At last, they have the chance to take the sightseeing train here for half an hour, which is not open every day.
Britain is the birthplace of trains, and a national railway museum is built near the old city of York, once the economic center (walking for about 10 minutes). Museum parking requires online booking procedures, can be handled immediately after arrival, parking concessions are larger. The museum is open free of charge. When you enter the museum, you will be given a performance schedule for the day. You can watch it in different places according to the time above. There is also a free lecturer service.

In the main hall of The Great Hall, there are the largest steam-powered locomotives in the world, the cars used by Queen Victoria, the Hogwarts train in Harry Potter movies, the Star of Europe, Shinkansen Japan and Stephenson's rocket replicas. The second floor corridor shows the models of trains (children's favorite), license plates, train tickets and other items and photos. There are also "MINIATURE RAILWAY RIDE, "MINIATURE RAILWAY RIDE, especially for small railway fans. In the museum entrance, you can also take a retro train, shuttle between the ancient cities, enjoy the city's scenery, very interesting.
As soon as I got off the train, the weather was good. I followed the sign to the National Railway Museum. Many trains, many children. What impressed me most was the carriage of a certain king and queen, which was said to have been designed by themselves and had a very Royal style. Royal trains during World War II were much simpler.
The Yorkshire Railway Museum has three large exhibition areas, displaying hundreds of different locomotives and vehicles, from steam engines to European Stars and Shinkansen locomotives in Japan, from luxurious Royal trains to various transport locomotives, postal locomotives, and locomotives specially designed for China's railways (taller than other locomotives of the same period), and even part of them. It specializes in displaying many items related to railways, including various tools, rag strips and so on. It looks like a junk market. There is also an overpass at the railway station that was moved into the museum. We are humiliated by the British people's emphasis on and preservation of history. The museum is very large, and there are many introductions in it. Slowly, it will take several hours. There are also cafes in it. When tired, you can sit down and have a cup of coffee and snacks.
