One of Britain’s best loved writers and comedians was in York today.
David Walliams went on a tour round the National Railway Museum, and seemed to have a thoroughly enjoyable trip.
The Little Britain star said in a Tweet:
I loved visiting the railway museum today which I last went to when I was 12.
It is a treasure trove of famous locomotives and trains.
My dad worked on the railways as an engineer and my granddad gave me a Hornby train-set when I was 8 so I am something of an enthusiast.
He also tweeted out this picture of one of the museum’s most famous locos…

David, who is beloved by youngsters for his amazing range of best-selling children’s books, received a lot of love on Twitter – as did the NRM.
“I love that museum. Most I find boring but York Railway Museum is really interesting,” said Michele Rickard.
And Katherine Birkett agreed. “I paid a visit to the museum last year as part of my 40th birthday celebrations. A fantastic place which I will go back to see some time soon! Hope you enjoyed your visit!”
