This is the one outside the centre of Beijing called the China Railway Museum, a huge shed of steam, diesel and electric locos with some carriages. Take the underground to Dong Zhi Men, Line 2, on the top right corner of the underground map. Go...More

Not sure why everyone has a different opinion on how to get there. I just went and can help you. From 798 art zone, continue down Jiuxianqiao N Road until it ends. You will pass over a single RR track. Then you will go over...More

The taxi driver had no idea where it was and had to be encouraged down what looked like unmade roads. A full shed of trains. You have to pay an extra 10rmb to go inside the carriages. Not as good as York, England but worth...More

This is perhaps the largest collection of high quality steam and electric and diesel railway locomotives in the world. China does steam well, and this is a must-see for any railway fan. The gigantic single hangar, with lots of skylights and very good lighting, is...More

Located a little far away from town, this museum is choc-a-bloc full of trains from the early 40s until now. Includes the Mao train, Zhu De train, one Zhou EnLai used, and also many massive ones with names like "Liberation" and "Peace".

I was very interested in this place because my father worked at the railroad most of his working career in USA at Norfolk & Southern Railroad

Located on the outskirts, but worth the effort for railway buffs and young boys. Others who are tired of the usual Chinese museum fare like dragons, jades, porcelain and bronzes may also find it a unique diversion. The engines are packed like sardines on about...More
