Staphenson Railway Museum

About

Re-live the glorious days of the steam railway at Stephenson Railway Museum in North Shields. A range of fascinating locomotives are on display including George Stephenson's 'Billy', a forerunner of the world-famous Rocket. Interactive exhibitions explore how trains work and the impact on peoples’ lives of coal and electricity, crucial in the development of railway power.

On scheduled days, visitors can take a ride on a passenger train pulled by the 'Jackie Milburn' steam engine or heritage diesel locomotives.

For up-to-date information, please visit the Stephenson Railway Museum website before your visit.
