Worked there for the railways many moons ago. Hated the job, loved the town, so absoulutely no insult intended to darlingtonites!

Cool! I'm originally from south stafffordshire, near Wolverhampton-no steam heritage down there but up here theres loads of it! Not only is it the place where the railways started (the world's first passenger steam loco service began in Shildon, near Darlington) but also the first new Steam loco for 50 years , the Tornado, was built here and unveiled last year.
