The NSW Rail Museum houses Australia’s largest collection of rail exhibits and undertakes regular rail heritage experiences across Sydney and NSW. Join us for a day trip aboard a steam train, take a tour of the restored heritage trains on display and learn the history of NSW rail. You can have a day out with Thomas the Tank Engine, or travel through Blue Mountains scenery in a heritage Steam Train.

Due to bushfires and other weather events, some of our railways were badly damaged. Thousands of volunteer hours go into all heritage railways and the loss of the ones affected was devastating for those who had spent so much of themselves . We would hope that you will take a look at each one, they still show on the map and are listed in the Working to Reopen menu on the sidebar, and if there is any way you can help, that you might do so.
