Opening Times

Dwight D. Eisenhower’s cosmetic restoration in now complete. After travelling over 2,500 miles across the Atlantic, Dwight’s journey to join the Mallard 75 celebrations is nearly over. The loco’s current B.R Green livery has been refreshed and over 70 litres of paint and varnish were used to ensure the historic loco is on top form for July’s event. Dwight can be seen from our workshop balcony while the varnish dries and will then be moved into our Great Hall. Fellow A4 loco, Union of Canada, is also receiving a makeover and can be seen at our sister museum in Shildon. Keep an eye on our website for more Mallard 75 related news.
