I've been here a few times, one of my earliest memories was my dad taking me to see the trains at York.
I recently visited with my wife, and things have changed quite a bit.
Entry is now free to the museum but there is a suggested donation of £3 per person to get in to help them to keep the place slick and span and shiny.
It's still a brilliant afternoon out, there's lots of things to do for both adults and kids. We're not train enthusiasts but we both loved it.
It's a brilliant representation of a big part of our history, and just shows you what we were capable of as a nation from an early period.
To stand at the side of some of these engines and appreciate the sheer size and power of them is something a bit different.
There are lots of old and new trains alike. Including Mallard, the royal train and the bullet train.
The place was busy when we visited but just right, you never felt pressured to move on or hurry up.
There's also a nice cafe on the platform with old fashioned style booths. They serve alsorts, we had a couple of pieces of cake and a pot of tea.
All in all a lovely visit would definitely recommend
