  • An amazing collection of historic rail pieces. Makes you appreciate the work and effort that went into building and maintaining the rail system.
  • Well laid out museum with lots of interesting displays both inside the old station buildings and railway rolling stock in the yard. Well worth having a look if you're in the area.
  • If your a train buff you've reached the one well worth a visit.
  • Nice place to stop by. Really strange the way the train station is almost diagonally split by the border. QLD has the majority of it including the building.
  • Great setup. Knowledgeable and helpful staff - all volunteers. Train buffs will love the place. Lovely countryside and views to die for.
