We need you...
    If you would like more information please come along on a Tuesday morning and have a chat with us over a cup of coffee.
    We would like more people to join the Friends to help us to ensure that people visiting the museum, as individuals, families or as an organised group, will enjoy the experience of what they see and hear and will make a return visit and encourage others to do

It is possible that a series of talks will be arranged with regard to local
interest within the area on such subjects as railways (obviously), area
geology, historic buildings etc. These could have visits or walks added to
them as required. Please keep looking at the web site for more exciting news on this

During the museums closure, some exhibits have left, while others have taken their place.
We were all very sorry to say goodbye to The Green Arrow, and engine number 251,
both of which have gone to a new home in Doncaster.
These have been replaced by the original Locomotion no 1 from the Head of steam in Darlington,
and the power car of an HST.
