Welcome to the web site of the FNRM-NE. I hope that you will find it both interesting
and easy to use.
It will give you an insight into the work of the FNRM-NE at Locomotion Shildon, and
perhaps inspire you to join us.
We are involved in many activities including cleaning the exhibits, tours of the
museum and explaining the workings of engines. (please see “What We Do”).
If you would like more information please come along on a Tuesday morning and have
a chat with us over a cup of coffee.
We need you...
We would like more people to join the Friends to help us to ensure that people visiting
the museum, as individuals, families or as an organised group, will enjoy the experience
of what they see and hear and will make a return visit and encourage others to do
Subject to the availability of volunteers, the cab of a locomotive, in Locomotion
will be opened up, from 10.30am to 12.30pm every Tuesday. The Public can have access
to a cab and information on the workings of a steam engine.
