  • Its a wonderful museum, a must visit for all visitors, see the film in the museum on the Fell Engine. To think this old now restored Fell Engine sat in the Childrens Playground for years, until they realised its value, beautifully restored in the Museum. I bought a lovely postcard on trademe the other month of this very train, and donated it to the Museum, they didnt have one like it, so was pleased its gone to a good home, it was in colour as well, the Fell Engine coming up the tracks, could have been around Siberia area of Rimutaka Incline (Remutaka as the old/new spelling is!) Dont leave town until you have seen the museums!!!
  • Very interesting museum. Takes you back to a different era and really brings home the importance and challenges of the folks who worked and kept these Fell Engines going over the range. Once you drive from Featherston to Wellington, you will get a new sense of awe for the machines and crews that traversed the range on the rail line.
