Brick Train Sculpture
Morton Park, Darlington DL1 4PJ - England, UK
  Share Location Map  
 
 
To celebrate the rich railway heritage of Darlington, this sculpture was commissioned and created in 1997 by David Mach. Comprising over 181,000 bricks, the sculpture is a mockup of the famous “Mallard” locomotive and lies only 1000 yards from the track bed of the world’s first railway line which ran from Stockton to Darlington. Visitors can park at the Morrisons Morton Park shopping area and walk along special footpaths to reach the sculpture. Once there, the adventurous can climb to the platform overlooking the train from above. The sculpture is signposted from surrounding roads.

Hard to find now as the signs are bleached and when you enter car park nothing to show till you are on top of it. It could improve if all of the salts were washed of it and the explanation signs need replacing. Unfortunatley it seems that Darlington has forgotten what a marvelous piece of sculpture it has, and is letting it down. Please bring it back as soon as possible, I am sure you would have plenty of volunteers. - Monitor
