No, really. Nipped around the Derby Industrial Museum which contains a fascinating almost entirely backlit exhibition about British Rail Research. Sadly BR Research didn’t last much after the 1991 creation of this museum, but as you can see from the following photos this place was and is all about the future. And with talk of 140mph trains, it’s a future we’re still yet to see to be honest.
Also on show was a large scale model of the APT – Advanced Passenger Train.
