The partnership provides opportunities to work together towards the museum’s Vision 2025, to capture the hearts and minds of the next generation of engineers, innovators and thinkers
The National Railway Museum is committed to highlighting the work of today's railway network, as seen in the recent Railway Heroes exhibition showcasing railway workers who gave back to their communities—and country—during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Vision 2025 is a six-year journey to transform the National Railway Museum, York, and Locomotion in Shildon into the ‘World’s Railway Museum’ by becoming a global engineering powerhouse and a space to celebrate the past, present and future of railway.
Judith McNicol, Director of the National Railway Museum, said: “I am thrilled that CrossCountry has committed to supporting the National Railway Museum once again. The support of our partners will allow us to achieve our aspiration to become the World's Railway Museum through the transformational Vision 2025 masterplan.”
Anna Weeks, North East & Scotland Regional Director at CrossCountry Trains said: “We are delighted to be renewing our partnership with the National Railway Museum to show our support towards Vision 2025 and help inspire the engineers and railway employees of the future.”
