More about the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum
The extensive collection at the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum has been building up since the 1950s, when the Talyllyn Railway Preservation Society took over operation of the Talyllyn Railway.
Visitors to the museum can learn how steam locomotives work, how narrow-gauge railways were used during World War I and even control the footplate of William Finlay – one of the vintage trains at the museum. There are plenty of interactive displays, quizzes and activities for children to get involved with too during your visit – making it a fun out day for all the family.
