Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Shildon is a Victorian railway town in County Durham, 2 miles from Bishop Auckland.

It was at one time the centre for wagon building and repair, and the first steam train to carry both passengers and goods ran from Shildon.

The famed railway engineer Timothy Hackworth established his works here, building the famous engine "Sans Pareil".

Loco-Motion, an offshoot of the Ntional Railway Museum at York, has been established here.
