The Miniature Trains


Our miniature railway was purchased from a commercial operator in 2015 and is now operated by museum volunteers.

The railway runs on 7.5 inch gauge track, and can convey passengers of all ages.

The trains are powered by two locomotives:

Edgeworth David is a small freelance 0-4-0 steam locomotive, named after the discoverer of the South Maitland Coalfields.

Emily is a bright yellow petrol-mechanical locomotive to the outline of a small shunter.

Rides are available throughout our open days. A gold coin donation towards operating costs is appreciated.
