The National Railway Museum is located in York, North Yorkshire. It is part of the British National Museum of Science and Industry.

The museum displays a large collection of locomotives and rolling stock. It also displays many other items of interest including a carousel. It was opened in 1975, on the former site of the York North Locomotive Depot,which merged two collections, the Clapham British Railways Collection and the York Railway Museum.

The locomotives and rolling stock on display are exchanged from time to time with other organisations. Examples of new-build stock from the current industry are also displayed at the museum for short periods of time.

A few notable imported locomotives are on display, such as the West Japan Railways Shinkansen 'Bullet Train' built in 1976.
