Train Rides

Journey back in time for a ride behind our replica of Stephenson's Rocket.

Hop on board for an authentic train ride at our museum.

The journey takes you along the original line of the Stockton & Darlington Railway, past the museum's Main Hall and back towards the historic coal drops—the perfect way to take in our main sights and truly appreciate the power of a locomotive.

Tickets are available from the Welcome Desk on the day of your visit.

Please note this event has limited capacity.

Rides are subject to availability.
