The CANBERRA HERITAGE RAILWAY MUSEUM is operated by the ACT division of
the Australian Railway Historical Society. The museum houses displays
of historic locomotives, carriages and rail memorabilia. In addition,
the Canberra Railway Museum is the home to both Australia’s oldest
and largest operating steam locomotives. The oldest, 1210, was built in 1878
whilst the Beyer-Garratt 6029 steam locomotive weighs 265 tons.
We also host education tours and are available as a party
venue. We welcome group visits, and locations for events such as
wedding photography and filming.
Throughout the year we run fantastic heritage rail trips and tours –
from regular short shuttle trips to Fyshwick, to steam hauled trains
to Bungendore, to long distance trips to Sydney and beyond. We also
run dinner/dance trains, and offer charters for your special occasion.
