Run on a shoe string, this Railway museum is a must see and would be of great interest to both railway enthusiasts and historians given the range of exhibits. The railways were a significant contributor to the development of the country from the 1890s and during its existence has had one of the best collections of steam engines in the world. The museum is run by Gordon a retired 37 year veteran of the railways and his knowledge and enthusiam makes the tour very interesting and enjoyable. Amongst the museum's many exhibits is Cecil John Rhodes carriage which is in mint condition. Other then engines, carriages and equipment there is a good selection of crockery and cuttlery from by-gone eras and some wonderful photographs including those from Royal visits. The museum has no Government funding and relies on small donations. Gordon asks for a nominal fee to visit the museum. Sean Kelly
