Head of Steam is currently closed for refurb to create a national visitor destination in Darlington.
However Station Scamps & other sessions will continue at other venues!
Reopening in 2024, Head of Steam – Darlington Railway Museum will be transformed by a major redevelopment to bring an exciting new museum experience to Darlington. Essential improvements will be carried out on the site, linking them together to create a cluster of attractions that will showcase Darlington’s innovative history.
While the redevelopment is taking place, Station Scamps will still be continuing away from the museum.
Station Scamps will be at a different venue.

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “It is fantastic to hear that we’ve got spades in the ground and can officially launch the start of building works on the Darlington Railway Heritage Quarter. This top-quality scheme will include attractions never seen before in our region.”
“This ambitious attraction will tell the story of how we helped shape the world through our rail heritage and innovation for generations to come, supporting the 200th anniversary celebrations of the Stockton and Darlington Railway. What’s more, it’ll do so while boosting tourism to support our brilliant local businesses, putting more money in people’s pockets.”
