  • National Railway Museum located in York Railway Museum in the UK and it says. In 1825 in the world for the first time started by steam locomotive train operating on the Stockton and Darlington Railway (transport of coal). Horse-drawn carriage in 1833, it was running in mixed navigation will be abolished, would be operated by steam locomotive complete. Museum of Darlington station (adjacent to the current North Road Station) was completed in 1843, and using the station at that time as a Museum, feel the remnants of that time can be. By the way, admission £ 4.95 in. Recommend you stop by this Museum at the annex of the National Railway Museum at Shildon in, when you come on a trip as a railway museum tour, Darlington to the base, located in North Road station. Because, from Darlington station is the station at Shildon and because fewer trains, is not wrong and 1 km to the town centre of Darlington from North Road station and from buses running. By the way, recommend North Road Museum, Museum at Shildon also going on a little walk from the nearest station, so some degree of walking shoes.

  • 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.
  • Nice place to know the origin of railway and first train Motion no.1.
  • Knowledgable staff some great exhibits
  • Too expensive for a family
