Our first visit to the city of York.
Our first stop was at the National Railway museum. Evening Star, a 9F loco, built in Swindon in 1960 and withdrawn from service in 1965.
A replica of George Stephenson's Rocket
The Duchess of Hamilton. A Coronation class built in 1938.
One of the carriages on the Coronation Scott.
The Great Western loco King George V built in 1927.
The amazing Warehouse area packed full of railway memorabilia.
Mallard undergoing restoration in the workshops.
As was the Flying Scotsman.
Terence Cuneo's painting of Waterloo Station which hangs in the Royal Train Hall.
I took this picture as we had visited the restored Midland Hotel in Morecambe a few years back.
York Minster. Not enough time on our flying visit to go inside.
We did visit this National Trust property. The Treasurer’s House.
A few pictures from a quick walk around the centre of the city. These are the oldest surviving row of houses in York. See plaque below.
Lower Petergate and the Minster.
The famous Shambles. Some history on the plaque below.
A final shot of the Shambles. You can imagine getting soaked by water and other liquids being thrown out of the upper windows in days gone by!
