NSW Rail Transport Museum

Home > Sydney > Museums | Fun for Children
Published April 2nd 2010
Seeing a steam train is like seeing Thomas the Tank Engine in real life. If that appeals to your inner child, take a trip 85km west of Sydney to the NSW Rail Transport Museum at Thirlemere.

For over 40 years, the museum has been collecting and preserving NSW's railway heritage. The Thirlmere Rail Heritage Centre is where you can view a collection of rolling stock and other railway artefacts of the heydays.

Operating on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month from March to November is the Heritage Train where the old steam train offers rides on a loop from Thirlmere to Picton or Buxton.

Catch the Heritage Express that operates on the main train lines to explore the mountains, the coast and outback NSW.

Thomas the Tank Engine will also be making a special appearance in May 2010. You and the kids will get a chance to spend a Day out with Thomas and the Fat Controller. Bookings can now be made via the website or call 02 9379 1110.
