"York Model Railway" National Railway Museum Tip by Tom_Fields
National Railway Museum, York: 38 reviews and 93 photos
Next to the York train station, near the National Railway Museum, is another attraction that is often overlooked. This is an elaborate model railway, the most impressive that I've seen anywhere. The craftsmanship and sheer hard work that went into this are incredible. It has
four different track systems, comprising over 300 meters of track. There are 14 trains running every day, plus hundreds of cars and a whole miniature world of houses, trees, bridges, vehicles, and on and on. The displays even simulate the change from day to night, with realistic lights coming on after "dark".
Address: Tea Room Square, York Station York, YO2 2AB
Directions: From the railway station turn left along Station Road. Take the next left turn into Leeman Road and follow the road for about 150m. The museum is on the right.
