Museum of Rail Travel

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Museum of Rail Travel at Ingrow, England is operated by the Vintage Carriages Trust (VCT), a charity based just north of Ingrow (West) railway station on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway in West Yorkshire. Founded in 1965, it became a registered charity in 1981 and opened in 1990.

The Trust has provided railway carriages for over 70 films and television programmes.

Two of the steam locomotives owned by VCT - "Sir Berkeley" and "Bellerophon" have visited railways in the Netherlands. "Bellerophon" has also visited Belgium. "Sir Berkeley" is on loan to the Middleton Railway, Leeds.

Carriages

The Vintage Carriages Trust owns the following carriages:

Road vehicles

Until early 2008, the museum was also home to a 1948 Scammell "mechanical horse", on loan from Tate & Lyle. This lorry attracted media attention in July 2002 when the museum received a speeding ticket, from Greater Manchester Police, claiming that the three-wheel vehicle had been caught speeding at 44 miles per hour in a 30 mph zone[1] – when in fact it has a maximum speed of only 18 mph. (It was a case of mistaken identity: a Belgian car with the same numberplate has been caught on camera in Bolton). Museum bosses were pleased to be able to show CCTV footage in its defence – at the time of the incident it was in pieces in the Museum's workshops.[2]

After a lengthy restoration into LNER blue livery, the mechanical horse and a matching trailer left Ingrow for pastures new in June 2008.[3]

Internet databases

The Vintage Carriages Trust website is also the gateway to the Railway Heritage Register databases: over 7,500 wagons, over 5,600 carriages, over 300 trams, over 60 horse-drawn vehicles, over 40 turntables.
