🚂 February half term | National Railway Museum
This February half term we’re on a mission to future-proof our lifestyle with a theme of energy and sustainability. Can you work together to find new ways to power our trains, reduce our waste and protect our planet?

How many vegetables would it have taken to power the 1.73 billion rail journeys made in Great Britain last year? How could kites inspire a totally new way of powering our network that doesn’t rely on burning fuel?

Tell us what you think while you take part in new challenges, classic shows and live demonstrations this February half term.
