Australian Railway Historical Society Museum
The Railway Museum has the largest collection of Victorian Railways steam locomotives. There are more than 15 different locomotives, ranging from the diminutive F class up to the H class, the largest locomotive to operate in Victoria.
In the days before mobile cranes, the Victorian Railways had their own. On display you will find 3 examples of steam cranes including No. 19, a 60 ton crane used at derailments.
The 1950's heralded the era of the diesel locomotives. Cleaner and more efficient, the early diesel locomotives quickly displaced the steam locomotives from regular service. Now displaced themselves by more powerful locomotives, the ground breaking diesel locomotives are now on display in the Railway Museum too.
Other equipment on display includes electric locomotives, suburban and country passenger carriages, Guards vans and a selection of freight wagons.
Come and see the evolution of steam power on the railways.
