The Narrow Gauge Railway Museum presents an exhibition telling the story of the of narrow gauge railway carriages.
The Museum houses a collection of locomotives, wagons and smaller artefacts – but no carriages! This exhibition is intended in part to fill that gap; an introduction to a large subject. A timeline tells the story, of narrow gauge carriages in the British Isles from 1807 to 2012 – over 200 years of history. The displays cover carriages built in the early days of railways right through to the current day. Both photographs and models illustrate this story.
This exhibitions runs alongside the Aberystwyth & Welsh Coast Railway 150 exhibition and is part of the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum.
