NEWS: Canberra Railway Museum is looking for volunteers from its membership so the Museum can open frequently and regularly. Museum guides and receptionists are needed. Training is available. Please contact Bob Hall () if you can help.

Canberra Railway Museum, now operated by Capital Region Heritage Rail (CRHR), has historic locomotives, carriages and rail memorabilia. It is the home of 140-year-old steam locomotive 1210 which brought the first train into Canberra in 1914.

The Museum is currently being re-established at the existing Kingston site, as a rail heritage centre for the people of Canberra and the broader Capital region. While there is still much work to be done, we once again look forward to:

  • welcoming visitors including school groups to the Canberra Railway Museum;
  • maintaining and restoring our fleet of former NSW rollingstock, many with direct links to the local area and some more than a century old;
  • operating heritage steam and rail motor journeys to local towns and villages.
We need more Canberrans to help either as volunteers or as donors/sponsors. Please go to our Contact Us page to see how you can help.
