‘Fantazmagoria’

A brand new event for sci-fi and Steampunk fans is taking place at Locomotion: The National Railway Museum at Shildon on Saturday March 25th and Sunday March 26th.

Organised by the Film & TV Model Club, Fantazmagoria aims to bring together film & TV collectables, models, Steampunk, art, comic books, war games and much more – under one roof.

Visitors will be able to browse displays and demonstrations by clubs and individual exhibitors, plus check out a range of traders offering collectables, costumes, jewellery, art and more.

Live music on the Saturday of the event will be provided by Kitchy Retro.

Visitors will also be able to get on board cabs of selected steam locomotives and take a steam train ride behind Furness Railway No. 20, the oldest standard gauge locomotive still operating in the UK.

Locomotion: The National Railway Museum at Shildon is open from 10am to 5pm daily. Parking and admission are free of charge. Please note that there is a charge for steam train rides.
