Railway Museum

Admission to the Museum is free and also accessible to visitors with mobility difficulties.

Visitors can view a vast array of railway items, some from as early as the 1800s. Although we try to focus on artefacts associated with the local area, with its strong links with the coal mining industry, our collections include items from much further afield. You don’t have to be an expert on railways to appreciate the inspirational displays prepared by our Museum Curator, Barry Bull, and his team of volunteer helpers.

Railway Museum ArtefactsMoving to the Museum area of the Heritage Centre, visitors are able to view a number of historic wagons and passenger coaches (the oldest having been built in 1875) which are part of our wider heritage collection. Many have strong local and regional connections, and all are of importance within the nation’s railway heritage.

We are able to accommodate organised groups, disabled visitors and bona fide students on non-operating days by prior arrangement, and the Museum is available to children taking part in the Railway’s Education Programme.

The Railway is always on the look-out for items to add to the museum collection. If you have something in the garage or loft for which you would like to find a good home, then please don’t hesitate to let us know by telephone during operating hours or by completing our contact form.

We are continuing to receive some truly interesting railway and related artefacts, some of which are of local historical significance, ensuring the displays are constantly being enhanced and updated. We would welcome any further donations or loans of items for display at Chasewater.

Subject to availability, the Museum is open to the public between 11.00am and 3.30pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays throughout our operating period. Direction signage is provided from the station platform.
