Is there plenty of car parking on site?

Hi Mike, there are limited spaces directly outside the museum entrance including disabled with the main car park only a short walk to the entrance (the museum may also open the field to park in as it's been dry but this is out of our hands).

There is also on street parking with no restrictions on Station Rd and McNay St only a short stroll.

Thanks to the Darlington club for putting on such a good show.  It was great to see Ray Goad's 'Tees Castle' and at the same time I got to meet Ray's family.  The signalboxes on 'Tees Castle' are works of art in themselves.  Also really enjoyed Brandon Walls, if anyone insists on 3 link couplings but doesn't want the hassle of actually using them...this layout has just the solution...and lastly Corrieshalloch, almost makes me want to switch from 4mm to 2mm...see here for more details... http://ayeates2mm.blogspot.com/
