Visitors can view a vast array of railway items, some from as early as the 1800s. Although we try to focus on artefacts associated with the local area, with its strong links with the coal mining industry, our collections include items from much further afield. You don’t have to be an expert on railways to appreciate the inspirational displays prepared by our Museum Curator and his team of volunteer helpers.
