A NEW exhibition at the National Railway Museum has seen visitors enjoy toys and games from generations of York residents.

The Big Fun With Little Trains exhibition, which explores the themes of railways and childhood, allows residents to vote for their favourite toys at the event, which runs at the NRM until Sunday.

John McGoldrick, Curator of Museum Collections added: "For lots of us our first introduction to railways would have been through books, toys, TV, clothing and furniture - our nurseries are full of railway characters and adventure. It’s an important part of how we experience ‘trains’ and there are lots of things in the museum’s stores which are familiar from our collective childhood."

Voting as also open online on Facebook, Twitter and nrm.org.uk and the nation's favourite railway toys will be collected for a major exhibition next year.
