Date: 29/11/2014

A fresh lottery bid has been launched for £10 million to create a world class railway museum in Leicester. If successful, it will be filled with priceless steam locomotives and hundreds of artefacts from the national collection in York. It will be built at the Leicester North end of the Great Central Railway (GCR) and tell the story of how railways helped Leicester thrive and develop. The new bid is being made in partnership with Leicester City Council and the National Railway Museum in York. [From Richard Buckby]
