National Railway Museum scraps contest after funding bid fails


On my first visit, ten days ago, the spectacle of the vast range of exhibits was run a close second by the sight of the remarkable number of overseas visitors - many from way beyond Europe. The National Lottery Fund sometimes moves in mysterious ways, and I hope that it's not influenced by the fact that the Museum doesn't charge an entry fee - it's not allowed to.
