Railway Heroes

Available online and at the museum, this exhibition showcases a collection of interviews with a handful of the thousands of railway workers who have helped get key workers to and from their jobs and given back to their communities—and country—during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To enjoy the online exhibition you can jump in and read the full story or select an individual below to read about their experiences.

You can also find the physical Railway Heroes exhibition in the middle of Great Hall.
