Great Eastern Highway, Merredin, 6415
The Merredin Railway Museum pays tribute to the days of steam with a well-restored recreation of the old station. You can pretend to drive a steam train and climb the signal tower for an interesting outlook. It is a real highlight for railway enthusiasts.
Appreciate the architecture of the Railway Museum buildings dating back to 1913, with much of the original railway memorabilia still in place. Merredin was once a major rail junction for the Central Wheatbelt.
Displays include; a G117 class steam locomotive circa 1897, a signal box housing 95 levers, displays of Merredin's railway history, and an extensive photographic register of pioneer women of the area.
Merredin is located three hours east of Perth. The township of Merredin has a number of interesting and unusual historic buildings worth visiting including the Post Office (1913), the Town Hall (1925) and the Cummins Theatre.
The Railway station initially opened in 1895, and since the transfer over to standard gauge for locomotives the Railway Station now operates as a Railway Museum. Reminisce about the past, climb the signal tower and enjoy railway memorabilia.
You'll find us along The Great Eastern Highway in the Merredin town centre.
