It also has a branch in downtown Beijing, in the former Zhengyangmen East Railway Station near Tian'anmen Square.Downtown branchIn 2008, the Beijing Railway Museum was opened in 2008 in a building to includes the clock-tower of the former Zhengyangmen East Railway Station of the Jingfeng Railway, just southeast of the Tian'anmen Square. The rest of the building is entirely new-build, dating from the 1979 construction of Beijing Subway Line 4, which required the rest of the old station to be demolished. The historic facade was then reconstructed, in mirror-image, on the opposite (right hand) side of the clock tower. In October 2010, Beijing Railway Museum was renamed to the Zhengyangmen Branch (正阳门馆) of the China Railway Museum. This part of the museum contains only one full size historic locomotive - an 0-6-0 tank engine from the 19th century. The rest of the displays comprise models, maps (some in 3D relief), photographs, documents and displays about the development of railways in China, including architectural models of six new stations on the CRH China Railway High-speed system. Also on display is a CRH3 cab simulator.
