Exhibition Dates: 12, 13 & 14 October 2018 - Railway in Wartime

Exhibition Location: Atkins Building, accessible from 'The Sidings', Pickering Station Car Park.

Commemorating the centenary of the end of World War One, the LNERCA presents a beautiful and emotive audio-visual experience, housed in an original WW1 Dining Car under restoration, combining a commissioned audio soundscape with evocative pencil illustrations by artist Max Hirst. This new exhibition for Railway in Wartime 2018 cleverly merges the factual story behind the design of this beautifully ornate and unique Victorian/Edwardian coach with the fictional tale of Sam ‘Nipper’ Perkins, on board Pantry Boy & WW1 Soldier.

Exhibition includes real life testimonies from members of the NER Battalion.

Please note that unfortunately, due to the age of the coach, there is no wheelchair access.
