Station Hall was once home to York’s main goods station. It was built in the 1870s and was a working railway building into the 1960s. We was commissioned to redesign the lighting in the hall as part of a comprehensive re-displaying of the objects which include a wide array of locomotive vehicles and equipment including the most complete collection of historic royal trains and carriages.
Visitors can soak up the atmosphere of this historic building filled with vehicles spanning a century of railway history. Our exciting design includes several sophisticated, automated animation sequences which combine lighting effects and haze machines to simulate the authentic steam train era.
The scheme also included the restoration of the original station lanterns, additional lighting for the popular catering outlets and more flexible lighting for corporate events.
