[pic1]Northern Ghost Investigations will be at the Darlington Railway Museum on Friday 1st December, 2006.

To give you and ourselves a little taster on the history of the DRM, I've pulled the following from the museums website

Make sure to head back next week to read the reports of how we got on and to view the pictures and videos footage we managed to obtain on the investigation.

Something nagging in the back of my mind seems to tell me that this one could be a good one. We'll see!!

The Stockton and Darlington Railway was opened on September 27th 1825 with the prime purpose of transporting coal from the south west Durham collieries around Shildon, West Auckland and Witton Park, to the River Tees at Stockton, for shipment to the south of England.

The Stockton & Darlington was by no means the first railway, but its opening in 1825 marked a very significant step in the development of railways by bringing together two features for the first time:

- The concept of a public railway, available to all, for transport of passengers and goods;

- The use of steam locomotives.

The ceremonial opening on 27 September 1825 was the first occasion on which a steam locomotive was used to haul passengers on a public railway. The locomotive concerned, Stephenson's 'Locomotion' still exists and is displayed at Darlington Railway Centre and Museum, which is situated on the original 1825 S & DR route.
