Nice little museum about Stephenson's Locomotion No.1 & the Darlington Stockton Railway. Loads of information about the railway & Darlington's wider railway history. There are some activities for children & collection also includes a couple of additional engines. If you go on the right day you can also visit the A1/P2 Steam Trust to see progress of the new P2 build & information about A1 class Tornado.
Heaven for railway lovers and children. The world's very first locomotive, the Locomotion No. 1 is exposed here.
