THE railways connect every part of Britain and people use trains all the time. But do you know how railways work?
Whose job is it to look after every piece of track? Why do some trains go faster than others? And why do your ears pop sometimes when you go in a tunnel?
The National Railway Museum in York (part of the Science Museum Group) is inviting young people to visit us over half term (21 October – 5 November) to find out more about railway engineering.
Called ‘Future Engineers’, there will be lots of free activities and things to do with a mini Maglev train, an award-winning rapper, science shows and the chance to take part in an exciting flux dance.
There will be plenty of real-life engineers from across the country ready to answer your questions, such as “How do I become an engineer?” and “What does an engineer eat for breakfast?”
