We're working with York Theatre Royal in 2015 and creating some memorable events that bring the story of the railway and our Collection to life. The preparations for this mean that there will be disruption to our South Yard area during the spring.
We will also be hosting this year's York Theatre Royal panto in our Signal Box Theatre.
We anticipate that the restoration work to return iconic locomotive Flying Scotsman to steam will be completed in 2015, after a milestone moment in the project was safely passed this month.
First World War
To commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the First World War, we are focusing on a wartime railway story which is perhaps less well-known. From July 2016, our exhibition will tell the story of the ambulance trains used to transport sick and injured troops, both in theatres of war and in the UK.
