  • This rail museum is unique in the sense that it is only the 2nd Railway museum in the country after National Rail Museum(NRM)at New Delhi and the FIRST IN EASTERN INDIA. It houses old and rare steam locomotives, first electric loco built in the country, various artifacts,models,evolution of signalling, electrification, tracks etc . A replica of Howrah Station houses photographs tracing the history of railways in Eastern India.A toy train would keep the kids busy.The fountain and the greenery makes this a place for relaxation as well as learning about the heritage and history of railways in Eastern India.
  • It's near from howrah stations approx 10min walking distance. If you your train is delayed or if u have interest on indian train history than visit this place. Thursday closed n for other days timing is 10 am to 7pm.Thanks for reading my reviews .Regards
  • It's really good and different type of museum in Howrah. It offers a wide amount of knowledge on railways' history, it's signalling etc. Toy train ride is enjoyable. Old wooden compartments and it's arrangements are really surprising. East pakistan express engine and other are here. Canteen facility's addition will add the charm to this small museum.
