Welcome 

As we continue to take forward the long-standing collaboration between the National Railway Museum (NRM) and the University of York, I am pleased to welcome you to our newly-launched website. This will become the hub for our collective activities, and serve to reinforce the important, valuable and special relationship between the two organisations.

With a commitment to furthering scholarly activity within the sphere of railway history, we look forward to sharing with you the fruits of our partnership for many years to come.
