We visited it during morning and the place was great for some pictures. The museum is just like other railway museum though. The facility is maintained by volunteers and there is a ticket for visit. The location is pretty.

A lot of effort has gone into preservation and the recording of a piece of history. If you have a interest in trains and the historical significance of the Tenterfield railway station then you are sure to be able to pass an hour or two.

A wonderful opportunity to experience the bygone era of railways in country New South Wales. The Station opened in 1886 and is a rare survival of something that was once common throughout NSW.   It is an almost intact nineteenth century railway precinct.  When the...More

A pleasant time especially for train buffs. A video followed by tours through old carriages lovingly restored and stories from the volunteers.

There is much history in Tenterfield and the old but beautifully preserved Railway has loads of it. A real walk back in times.
