Bassendean Museum Exhibits

The Railway Museum holds a varied collection of locomotives from Western Australia. The bulk of the collection are locomotives that once ran on the WAGR. Other locomotives however are representative of locomotives that ran on the Midland Railway of WA and private timber lines as well as mines in the goldfields of Western Australia.
A book titled Guide to the collection THE RAILWAY MUSEUM Western Australia by Bill Gray is also available for purchase in the sales section and provides a much broader coverage of all the exhibits.
