National Railway Museum Director  and Durham County Council’s Rosemary Laxton were there to welcome these landmark visitors, the Lancaster family from Greenside: April and Stephen Lancaster and their sons, 2½-year-old Ben and 10-month-old Sam.

Check out the pictures below: the Lancasters were treated to a steam ride behind Furness Railway No.20 and a lunch at the museum café.
