    Not only a witness to railway history, but also a testimony of Sino-Japanese War, the museum systematically guides you through the construction, finance, and evolution…etc of the railway system in the region. The ground floor is a huge exhibition hall of antique locomotives and train compartments of different models, some of which once in service over a hundred years ago. The French-made Michelin rubber-tyre passenger diesel locomotive was particularly impressive. (Jun 2014)

    Tells the story of early 20th century history of the Dian-Yue railway, and to the Yunnan railway during development. The physical display of multiple locomotives in different periods.
