Venture into our original 1840’s railway station where time has stood still for over one hundred and fifty years. Discover our Booking Office with its original Victorian interior. Explore our platform that still has its original footbridge, waiting room, newspaper kiosk and Victorian toilets. Follow the history of Darlington and the growth of the Railways through our permanent exhibitions and interactives. Journey through time and admire our four historic locomotives including our star attraction, Stephenson’s Locomotion No 1 (on loan from the National Railway Museum).
