Illuminating York ... A Photo Blog (Mostly)

As part of the Illuminating York Festival, the National Rail Museum held an event called Locos in a Different Light. The NRM are also currently hosting The Great Gathering where the six remaining A4 locos in the world have been brought together to celebrate the 75th anniversary of The Mallard's steam record.This is what it looked like

And this is what two seventeen year olds and a twelve year old look like after a couple of hours of cleverly lit up trains....
