NileGuide Expert tip:
A must visit, you will chug right back to your childhood.
- Set amidst a sprawling park, this museum is a must not just for the train buff. A compact but informative indoor museum displays a range of interesting objects, but the main attractions are old steam engines parked outside. The star attraction is the Fairy Queen, made in 1855 and considered to be one of the best preserved steam locomotive engines of her age. The line-up of other old coaches include Prince of Wales Saloon, built in 1875, Maharaja of Mysore Saloon, built in 1899, and the Nilgiri coach, built in 1914 for the the local travellers. Children can take a ride on the toy train, which circles the museum yard. On your way out, don't miss the handsome Fire Engine, built in 1914 for the Nizam of Hyderabad.
Admission fee: Rs. 10
