Uncover the people, places and technology that power our rail system—then see the real thing in action.

In our Working Railway Gallery you can discover more about life as a railway signaller, track real-time train movements via our electronic signal display, find out how a wheel drop works, and travel back in time with archive railway films.

Once you’ve finished exploring, venture out onto our special Viewing Balcony and catch a glimpse of the trains coming in and out of York station on the main line.
