“For railway and history buffs alike”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Excellently preserved and maintained. Most of the buildings are still intact as are most of the tracks. Lots of historic interest for railways enthusiasts, or if you are just interested in the area's history. Entry is cheap and is on the "honour system." What a pity the trains don't still run

“A train lover's dream, but really interesting for non train buffs too”
Reviewed April 29, 2012 via mobile

Staffed by friendly volunteers, this is a really interesting glimpse back in time to when railway was king in Australia. Well worth a visit - you can walk through old carriages and trains, see the station as it used to be and watch video footage of the last train to leave Tenterfield. I am no train buff and I really enjoyed my time here.
