Bishop Auckland trains still call at Darlington North Road, where some of the adjacent buildings now house the Darlington Railway Museum. The museum apparently has several ghosts, in addition to its railway collection.
North Road Station
Head of Steam Museum
The ghosts of North Road station include a third-class carriage ghost, a man in a red jacket on locomotive Tennant 1463, the ghost in the cellar, a man in black on the platform bridge and a phantom passenger.
The museum exhibits consist of S&DR artefacts, including locomotives and models. It houses Locomotion No.1, the first loco to carry railway passengers, and other locomotives.
