Being in York with a couple of hours to spare, there was somewhere else I just had to visit - the National Railway Museum. As it was free I was happy to pop in for a quick look round, knowing that I can come back for more next time I'm in York.
If I was a proper railway buff I would no doubt have drooled over the beautifully restored and shiny locomotives rather than being most enchanted by an unlabelled (at least I couldn't find one), preserved but unrestored, carriage:
I shall definitely visit again.
