Just 250m from the North Williamstown Railway Station at 26 Champion Road, Newport, you will find the Train Museum. It is only open on Saturdays 12 noon till 5pm. Entry Fees are: Adults $8.00 and Children/Concession $4.00; Children Under 4 years of age are Free; Family $20.00.

This is a fascinating collection of trains from various different eras, as well as Model Railway, artefacts, collectors pieces. The Railway Museum has on display the largest collection of Victorian Railways steam & diesel locomotives, as well as steam cranes. There are more than 15 different locomotives, and other equipment on display including electric locomotives, suburban and country passenger carriages, guards vans and a selection of freight wagons, ticket machines, lamps, scales, weights, porter wagons, just about anything I can remember as a child, include the old signal box!

We spent a fascinating couple of hours, well worth the entry fee, even for non-train enthusiast. More information can be found on the website

Unfortunately some of the trains are in a sad state of disrepair, but they are attempting to restore as many as possible
