Visit to National Railway Museum April 2015

Postby alex3410 » Thu Apr 23, 2015 1:27 pm

Hi guys,

Had a really nice day out yesterday visiting the NRM in York, i have not fully sorted though images but uploaded the lot so if you fancy looking through pop over to my Flicker album here

There is also a video showing the turntable in action which was fascinating to watch and really did show off the loco with it reflecting the sunlight really nicely as it rotated
Video link

thanks for looking

Nice vid. See they still haven't given Copper Knob back to it's rightful owners. It was moved to York during WW2, After its display case at Barrow in Furness station.was destroyed by a nearby bomb blast. It was supposed to be for safekeeping until hostilities ended, as it had been given to the people of Barrow when it was retired. They've been campaigning to get it back ever since 1945

Learn something new everyday - quick google also shows it has shrapnel wounds from the blast :shock: wiki page and that someone pinched one of its shed plates from the NRM in 2007

Wonder if that shed plate might turn up in Furness. No 20 was supposed to be a substitute for OCK but Lakeside and Haverthwaite had a big falling out with the Furness Society and now it wanders all over the place.

Now that's what I call a paint job on Truro! "Gleaming" hardly says it! Thank you for the movie.
