The impact of the Coronavirus

As you will be aware, the National Railway Museum at York and Locomotion at Shildon, along with all other museums and attractions across Britain, have closed in line with Government guidance in the fight against Covid-19. This includes the office of the Friends at York.


All Friends’ activities must inevitably be put on hold for the time being. This means that all meetings in York, the south and at Shildon are cancelled. Since the current  restrictions are likely to apply for some time, the decision has also been made to POSTPONE the Annual General Meeting scheduled for Saturday 13 June 2020. Nor will we be issuing any membership renewal letters, so do not worry if your renewal is due during this period.


We will update information on the website as and when there is news to tell.


Please all keep safe, healthy and cheerful through these difficult days. We look forward to the return of better times.


Best wishes


Philip Benham

Chairman, Friends of the National Railway Museum
