Attractions in North East
There's a bit less to choose from in the North East but lack of quantity is made up for by quality. This is the birthplace of railways and the Stephensons and there's a lot to see including the exciting Locomotion museum at Shildon. Here too is the unique Bowes Railway, which must have been frightening when in regular operation. Pumping stations and mining museums add to the variety.
The Steam Heritage Guide includes contact details, opening times and description of preservation and heritage attractions across the North East including Cleveland, Durham, Northumberland, Tees Valley and Tyne and Wear.
