Whats Happening on the Preserved and Museum Front


The National Railway Museum at Shildon (Locomotion) has re-opened following the worst of the pandemic.

It is still necessary to book tickets in advance, as visitor numbers are presently controlled. Admission is free, but when making a booking, you will be asked if you would like to make a donation. Fututre plans for the museum include a new colletions building, built on the site of the former Ashfield's premises.
