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?”

Find out more at www.nrm.org. uk/fu­ture-engi­neers.

Fu­ture engi­neers at work!
