Good stock of locos, carriages, wagons and ephemera. Particularly good re story of coal wagons used in the area. Good refreshments and loos.
Fab for a day not as big as York but children who loves train will love this and the children IE adults lol
What a refreshing change, excellent attraction and it's free. A must to see some locomotive history and educate the kids in an enjoyable way.
A BRILLIANT ASSET TO THE NORTH EAST! ..................(and don't forget to claim your free HALF cup of coffee!) I am a regular visitor to Locomotion,the National Railway Museum at Shildon and I truly consider it a privilege to have such a brilliant venue in my local area. I derive much pleasure on every visit, though I haven't attended recently,due to ill health. I fully appreciate it is free to enter, though I am always pleased to contribute a much-needed donation on each of my visits. Unfortunately,I would like to highlight one negative point, regarding the cafe. On every occasion, the customer service has been, truly excellent. However, on a recent visit, I handed in a completed voucher to claim a free drink and I was served by a member of staff, who I did not recognise.I was then rather astounded and embarrassed to receive a cup of coffee,which was barely HALF full, though the lady in question, was quite content to serve it. I fully appreciate the need to cut costs, but I honestly consider this is taking things rather too far, particularly, in view of the fact that cafe prices, in my opinion, do not exactly represent good value for money. I certainly won't be joining the queue for my next free HALF cup of coffee!.,.............in fact I'd rather pay for a full cup!........(and I'm not joking!)
Friendly, relaxed atmosphere.. Great place, welcoming and intresting for all the family :)🚂
Great atmosphere for families, my son thoroughly enjoys himself when we visit. Plenty of activities. And doesn't cost a thing.
Spent a fabulous morning at NRM Shildon . plenty to do and some beautiful exhibits well worth a trip
Excellent museum could visit over and over, and the special weekends are fantastic.
