The National Railway Museum in York displays a collection of over 100 locomotives and nearly 300 other items of rolling stock, virtually all of which either ran on the railways of Great Britain or were built here.

The museum first opened in 1975, housed in the huge former steam locomotive depot at Leeman Road next to the East Coast Main Line, near York railway station and only 700m from York Minster. In 1990, the Station Hall opened in York’s former railway goods depot across Leeman Road, nearly doubling the size of the museum in the process. The former diesel depot adjacent to the Great Hall was added as a store and in 1999 this was rebuilt to become “The Works”, providing public access to the Museum’s collections stores and workshops and a viewing gallery overlooking York Station. Today, the NRM is one of Britain’s busiest museums and is possibly the most popular railway museum in the world, attracting 931,000 visitors in 2013 LinkExternal link .
