Steam Extravaganza

Saturday 11th October 2014 - Sunday 12th October 2014

A FREE family weekend event exploring the golden age of steam at King’s Cross. Serving the north since the 1850s, the neighbourhood has hummed with passengers and trains for 160 years.

If you’re a budding Brunel, or an engine-driver expert, join us to celebrate the heritage and beauty of life on the tracks.

There’ll be classic model railways, experts from the world of steam, food and drink, as well as games, story telling and mini-workshops.

Come along to learn more, or just to see the sights!
