Shildon is a small town in south west Durham. It is very much a product of the industrial age and is proud of its railway heritage. The town can trace its links with the railways back to the early 1800s. It was here that George Stephenson’s ‘Locomotion’ was first placed on the rails for the inaugural run of the Stockton and Darlington Railway, and here that Timothy Hackworth built most of his remarkable locomotives at the Soho Engine Works. The Soho Works was soon producing engines that were shipped all over the world, including North America and Russia. Today, Shildon can boast the National Railway Museum's first ever 'outstation'. Thanks to a multi-million pound National Lottery award, the impressive 'Locomotion' tourist attraction opened in 2004. It is the region's first branch of a national museum and its 6,000 square metre collections centre houses up to 60 vehicles from the national collection. Also see Shildon & Shildon attractions
