Collections

The National Railway Museum collections cover all aspects of Australian railway history. Our collections include:

Rolling Stock – historic vehicles operated by State, Commonwealth and private railway operators on the three major rail gauges used in Australia

Infrastructure items related to the working of the railways such as station buildings, signalling and telecommunications equipment, track components, and maintenance vehicles.

The National Railway Museum possesses a wide range of information on organisations such as the South Australian Railways.

We welcome your enquiries and ask that you contact us via email or letter. If you wish to meet with one of the Curators in person, please make an appointment as we may not be available to see you immediately.
