'Rails and Remembrance' Exhibition Opens at Crewe Heritage Centre

The LMS-Patriot Project is staging an exhibition about Remembrance Engines, the VC recipients and the Railways at Crewe Heritage Centre. The 'Rails and Remembrance' exhibition opened at the beginning of September and runs until the end of 2018. A specially produced video tells the story of the role railways played during the Great War and how several Remembrance engines were built as a memorial to the employees of Railway Companies who gave their lives during the Great War. The exhibition brings the story to the present day with the creation of the new National Memorial Engine ’The Unknown Warrior’ which is being built to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice

Previously on display at The People's History Museum in Manchester at various periods from May 2014, the 'Rails and Remembrance' exhibition has been moved to Crewe as part of the 2018 - 100th Anniversary Commemorations of the end of the Great War.
