Transformation at Locomotion

We will explore the fascinating narrative of the Stockton & Darlington railway—the world's first passenger line—and its connection to the Locomotion site and railways in the North East.

A brand-new building at Locomotion will house impressive displays and draw on Shildon’s unique heritage as the cradle of the railways.

A sustainable open store will create opportunities for visitors to engage with the museum’s collection and be an inviting presence that emphasises Locomotion’s pivotal role as a cultural cornerstone for the community. AOC Architecture have been appointed to bring this project to life.
