Fancy a day out with a difference this summer? How about a journey into the past at a railway museum?
The Railway Hub brings you three very different venues, home to a varied collection of exhibits, large and small, charting the evolution of the railways from the earliest years to present day – both in the British Isles and in Europe.
Mangapps Railway Museum
The Mangapps Railway Museum will be celebrating their 30th birthday over the August Bank Holiday Weekend with more working trains than ever, open everyday in August.
There are “new and improved” areas to display the splendid expanding Mangapps Collection. Mangapps is no ordinary railway, it is “the must-do place to visit!”
- See their website for more details: www.mangapps.co.uk/

Head of Steam: Darlington Railway Museum
Imagine stepping back in time. Venture into Darlington Railway Museum’s original 1840s railway station and explore the platform, with its original footbridge, booking office, waiting room, newspaper kiosk and Victorian toilets.
Journey through time and admire their historic locomotives, including Locomotion No. 1.
The Danish Railway Museum
See the Danish Railway Museum’s full-size and fully functional replica of Denmark’s first train engine ODIN, from 1846, which was completed in 2018, and experience our large collection of vintage trains. You can see ODIN daily from 10am – 4pm.
