"What an awesome find in Peterborough" - We did a very informative tour of the rail yards, the first morning we were in Peterborough. It was amazing & we learnt so much about the area & it's railway history. Our guide was very experienced & knowledgable. That evening we returned for the light & sound show which was wonderful as well. We found the staff very friendly & informative about the local area. We thoroughly enjoyed it & would highly recommend everyone to visit & have the same experience as us

"Don’t miss this" - I’d read reviews that this was great. It was actually even more interesting than I expected (and I’m female). Just make sure you take a free guided tour - so much more information to be gleaned that way.
"Excellent" -This museum and the staff who run it are all excellent.
We had a great time walking through old carriages and engines and listening to the story from our guide.
You must spend an extra few dollars and see the light and sound show. Superb.
This museum is a credit to the people of Peterborough and all the railway folk from yesteryear.

"Fantastic Museum" - This was one of the best railway museums that we have been to. There is so much to see and the guide was great, had lots of interesting history to pass on. It really is worth calling in to see. I especially loved all the history on the trains that travelled the outback with a nurse so that young mothers could bring their babies in for checkups. Also great to see the beautiful carriages for VIPs
“The Major Highlight of Peterborough” - We did the day , then the night show. It was a fantastic experience. Our guide during the day was an ex employee of the railways and was a font of knowledge. There are lots of old trains to see and you can enter most of them. It is a real insight into the area , which was a major point in the rail network in Australia. Do not miss this attraction.
“Peterborough at its best” - This is our 2nd visit to Peterborough and we vowed to revisit and take a tour of the rail centre and we were not disappointed. Becci our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about steam and diesel trains which made the tour very informative and interesting. We have visited other Rail museums but Peterborough has a fantastic collection of trains and memorabilia, you can spend hours on the tour and looking around. We did not get a chance to take the sound and light show at the museum but will be back to visit this interesting town.
