Andrew guided me around which was a fantastic experience. He gave me great insight into the Toowoomba rail history plus some of the types of trains used over the years and some of the artwork. One carriage no one can take photos of due to artwork copyright but it’s a must see live purely amazing paintings.
If you are a train lover, especially steam locomotives. This is the place to visit. The volunteers have done a fantastic job in making these engines, carriages and museum something to amaze the young and old. Highly recommended.
