Something magical happens at the National Railway Museum when the sun goes down during Illuminating York.
Some of the iconic locomotives at the museum are transformed as part of its seventh annual lighting design spectacular, Locos In A Different Light.
The free-entry event runs every evening until 10pm from October 28–31 as part of the Illuminating York festival.
Locos In A Different Light sees the York-based museum’s cavernous Great Hall plunged into darkness and its fantastic engines take centre stage, transformed by amazing colour and light displays.
Six of the displays were created by theatre lighting design students from specialist colleges across the UK as part of a competition which took place during Tuesday evening (October 27).
Members of the public can vote for the entry which most captures their imagination over the course of the four-day showcase.
The student competition brought to life five locomotives which have never been part of the showcase before, as well as a returning favourite, Duchess of Hamilton.
And the story is brought right up to the present day with the newest addition to the Great Hall, a first-generation Eurostar power car.
