Canberra Railway Museum

Canberra railway carriagesLocated in the Canberra suburb of Kingston, Canberra Railway Museum occupies the original Commonwealth Railways land and is of significant heritage value to the people of Canberra.

The importance of this aspect was recognised by the ACT Heritage Council when on 1 June 2017 it decided to register the City Railway Remnants in Kingston on the ACT Heritage Register.

The Kingston site has been progressively developed since 1985 to meet the specialised needs of a rail heritage public museum, primarily by the effort of volunteers supplemented with financial assistance from initially the Commonwealth Government, and more recently the ACT Government.

The Museum has been recognised by the ACT Legislative Assembly for its important contribution to rail heritage in the ACT.

The Museum plans to reopen in 2019 with displays of historic locomotives, carriages and rail memorabilia. It will remain the home to 140-year-old steam locomotive 1210 which brought the first train into Canberra in 1914.
