To mark Flying Scotsman's eagerly anticipated return to the tracks we're planning a whole season of events and activities from February 2016 at our York and Shildon museums to celebrate the fame and celebrity of the locomotive legend.
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.
