The popular annual Classic Car Rally returns to Locomotion: The National Railway Museum at Shildon on Sunday July 17, 2016.
Come along to view a range of classic cars – ranging from a 1938 Austin Big 7 and a 1949 Cadillac Series 61 to a 1991 Nissan Figaro and a 1996 VW Polo Harlequin.
Visitors will also be able to enjoy performances by Bearpark & Esh Colliery Brass Band at 11.30am and 1.30pm.
