In 2016 we were named winners of The Tyne and Wear Archive and Museums “Engaging
the Audience” award for our work during the visit of Flying Scotsman to Locomotion.
On Thursday January 10th 2019 a dedication service was held at ‘Locomotion’ to recognise
the Railwaymen of Shildon Works who enlisted to serve in the First War World (1914-18).
A new memorial was unveiled to those men who enlisted and the men who remained behind
at the works to support the war effort.
This monument was paid for by the ‘Friends of the National Railway Museum’
