Former workers and families enjoy open day at Workshops

IPSWICH got a free look at its railway past in an annual open day at the Workshops Rail Museum.

The museum opened its doors to an estimated 3200 Ipswich residents and past workers for a free family fun day on Sunday to celebrate the museum and its connection with the city.

Director of the Museum Andrew Moritz said about 400 former workers were among the crowd as part of a reunion being held with the open day. Yesterday was one of the final chances to see the railways captured on camera through the Trainspotting and Three Foot Six photo displays.
