York is home to the National Railway Museum, which houses over 100 locomotives and a wide range of other rolling stock which have been built in the UK or run on the railways here at some point in time. The museum regularly attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, and is one of the most visited British museums outside of London. Highlights from the Great Hall at the museum include the Mallard train, which was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley and broke the world speed record for steam locomotives in 1938, and the Replica Rocket, based on George Stephenson’s famous design. As well as housing trains from the UK, the museum also owns a replica Shinkansen train from Japan, known as the ‘Bullet Train’ for its high speeds of over 130mph.
