Overview
More
The Merredin Railway Museum is housed in the Old Railway Station.Some of the things to look at and enjoy is the architecture of the buildings dating from 1913, the G117 class steam locomotive circa 1987, and the signal box housing 95 levers. Perhaps the highlight of the museum is being able to climb the signal tower for the unusual view of the complex.

We lived in Merredin when this museum was first established & we were delighted how well it has developed & being "loved" by the army of enthusiastic locals. Displays are well presented with good variety.

Being an ex railwayman the museum had many good memories. Plenty to see and offers displays other than railways relating to the region. Great to have a look in the signal cabin.
