Conservation in action: railway museum

Many of our visitors frequent our fantastic Railway Museum, therefore it is only right that we ensure that the collection of railway exhibits look their best!

Here we have Tony, one of our Conservation Assistants, polishing the brass finishes to ‘Charles’. He is using a polishing substance and a dry cloth to polish and buff, which leaves a gleaming finish to one of many beloved exhibits in our museum.

The next time you pay us a visit, come and have a look!
