The Eureka train at Halifax’s National Children’s Museum has undergone a £16,000 spruce up including a new livery and roof.

The train is used as an interesting and unusual lunch area for visiting school children and families and has been a popular attraction since it was installed in 2010.

All the work was done on-site over a three week period and the museum managed to continue to operate as normal while the work was ongoing, even though the train was out of action.

Tudor Gwynn, operation and projects director at Eureka, said: “The train has been a valuable resource for the museum and provides a great space for families and school children to use to relax, enjoy their lunch and learn a bit about rail travel and safety. We’re really grateful to the whole team that worked on the project and we’re delighted to have it back in action and looking better than ever.”
