World-famous steam locomotive back in Shildon after 170 years

A County Durham railway museum is preparing to unveil a world-famous steam locomotive.

It is hoped that thousands of visitors will make their way to the county to see Locomotion Number One on display in Shildon, for the first time in 170 years.

Shildon is close to where it made its first historic journey, on the Darlington to Stockton Railway.
