IN BRIEF: The National Railway Museum


The National Railway Museum has succeeded in winning almost £5M of lottery funding to build an 'out station' at Shildon in Durham to house its reserve collection of railway vehicles. The £7.7M facility will be the first of its kind for the York based museum and will be built in partnership with Sedgefield Borough Council.

The 6,000m 2building - due to open in 2004 - is expected to attract around 50,000 visitors a year.
