Head of Steam - Darlington Railway Museum


Darlington Railway Museum (now Head of Steam) was opened on the 27th September 1975 by the Duke of Edinburgh, on the 150th anniversary of the Stockton and Darlington Railway. The museum tells the story of Darlington and the impact of railways. It is housed in the old North Road station building, built in 1842, on the route of the Stockton and Darlington Railway.
