This is really not much of a train museum. I’ll take whatever I can get, however. Most of the old stock looks American, however the builder plates are ground smooth. A quick inspection showed them riding on American trucks and Timken bearings. The American style...More

It is free. Once you have finished visiting the Takao Railway Museum, you can hop over to Pier-2 which is just behind Takao Railway Museum. There you will find many art pieces e.g. paintings on buildings, sculptures etc... More
