Record Year-Bury Transport Museum



Whilst we all know about the heritage railway and its successes but we can sometimes forget about our wonderful Bury Transport Museum. I have just received the visitor figures for 2015 which are showing a huge rise of around 19% in visitor numbers, 44,000 as against 37,000 in 2014.

This is a real testament to all the people across the railway from Information and Booking Offices to Travelling Ticket Inspectors to Guards and Station staff, marketing and beyond who encourage people to come and visit, through to the staff and volunteers working in the museum who welcome visitors, giving them a good experience which leads repeat visits, and to the event organisers who ensure that the museum is fully utilised.

Overall, I want to pay tribute to the staff and volunteers who have helped make the museum a great place to visit and learn about our transport heritage.
