My husband is a real train buff from way back. This place is full of memrobllia that you will remember from the past. if you travelled by train interstate during the 50's and 60's you will love this place. We came to this area just to visit this place.

For years now I have been travelling to Armidale for weekend schools at the University. This year I detoured off the New England Highway to see the Railway museum . I am very glad I did. It's housed in Werris Creek Railway station (about 20 minutes drive from Tamworth) which is itself worth seeing- it's a splendid and very well... More

There are many interesting stories are interesting, and most of the volunteers are ex-railway employees. Admission is free, but a gold coin donation each helps.

The stories are interesting and some of the volunteers are ex-railway employees. Admission is free, but a gold coin donation each helps. There are video's to watch,... More

This museum houses some interesting memorabillia of train journeys long past. We had no idea of the amount of rail history in this area of NSW. It's always heartwarming to see museums run by volunteers keeping our history alive and not forgotten. If it wasn't for them it would be lost. Well worth a visit for all the family.

Housed in the Werris Creek railway station and run by volunteers, this provides an amazing insight into the development of railways in this country and particularly in the north-west of the state. Run by volunteers, admission is free but they have plans to extend the museum and welcome donations. I did not know that Werris Creek was the third biggest... More

We took a little drive from Tamworth and called in to this museum along the way. One of the volunteers was on hand to explain some of the items on display, which made it all the more interesting as we wouldn't have known what half the things were for or what they did. Very interesting, especially their version of a... More

Well worth a visit, in fact it's worth detouring into Werris Creek to view this museum. Would be enjoyed by gunzels and non-gunzels.
