National Railway Museum (NRM) – York

I went to York on the advice of the Pakistani cab driver who took me to visit the Leeds city center the other day. I kind of had to go there because back in India everyone will ask where all you went when you went to UK and, though it’s a miserly 5 day trip, will have nothing to answer. The only place I visited inside was the National Railway Museum in York, because the entry fee was nil. I know it’s a cheap trick but I promised to myself next time it’s going to be better. This is Rocket, the first train ever built, or close to it. This is Mallard, the first train to cross 100 mph mark. Station names.

I guess it was some royal train. Thse are the train nameplates.
