Past UK EVENT 23-25th May 2015

"From West Riding to West Africa"

 

Over Spring Bank Holiday weekend, 23-25th May 2015, the Friends of Sierra Leone National Railway Museum had a pop-up museum at Leeds Industrial Museum, at Armley Mills. 

 

We celebrated the shared railway heritage (six of our surviving locomotives were built in Leeds) between Leeds and Sierra Leone and three
important anniversaries:

 

100 years since our oldest locomotive, Nellie, was built in Leeds
by Manning Wardle & Company

40 years since the railway was closed

10 years since the museum was opened

With displays, food, music, talks and hands-on activities, Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills partnered with the Friends of SLNRM and local West African community groups to tell the story of how railway locomotives built in Leeds during and after WW1 changed West Africa forever. 

 

We're keen to establish more fundraising and profile-raising events in the UK. If you've an idea for us, get in touch!
