Britain is the birthplace of trains. In 1877, Yorke was already an important railway hub in the north of England. The railway station is also the largest in the world. So there is also a famous National Railway Museum and one of the largest railway museums in the world. The museum is free to visit, and staff at the entrance have the layout of the hair Museum and the tour route map. It is suggested to take a copy, because there are two venues, which are not close together. If it weren't for this, we might have missed another venue! When James Watt built his first single-action steam engine in Glasgow in 1776, he didn't think he would lead history. Maybe many people don't know that James Watt is Scottish. In 1814, born in an ordinary miner's family, George Stephenson built the world's first steam locomotive entirely on self-taught talent. At that moment, the two foundations of the industrial revolution, iron and steam, were finally perfectly integrated. The enormous power generated by them enabled the British Empire to take the lead in the industrialization of all other human beings. The Museum has nearly one million exhibits, retaining a large number of locomotives or replicas manufactured in the early and mid-19th century, with the largest number of locomotive exhibits in the world. In another venue stands the statue of Stephenson, the father of the steam locomotive. The Museum has the largest steam-powered locomotive in the world. There is also a steam engine named Mallard, which set a world record in 1938 when the speed was 203 kilometers per hour. In those days, the speed was really amazing. is part of Group Limited, one of the world's leading providers of travel services.
