The collection of vintage trains here is small but charming. Apart from the cars, carriages, engines and locomotives, the Chamunidi gallery here depicts the growth of Inidan Railways through photgraphs and paintings. The museum showcases two royal coaches that the Maharaja of Mysore used. Children will love the battery operated mini train that takes visitors around the exhibits.

Mysore Rail Museum is a good place to know the history of railways. The place a wide variety of trains and locomotive used earlier. It requires more maintenance work. The museum is very next to Mysore Railway Station and was not crowded on Sunday morning. Museum does not have parking. Had to park on the road towards railway station.
Small museum with good collection. You can get inside the railway engines of yesteryear’s and have a look at other different equipments n items, which are no more in use these days. Makes you think about the changing technologies with time and also historical significance of Indian Railways in development of the country. Calm n quite area to spend sometime with family and friends. Cooperative staff n clean surroundings. Scope is there for expansion of museum, so that tourists visiting MYSURU may get benefited. Parking arrangements be also improved.
Was never aware that there is one rail museum and that too this well maintained. Interesting place to see the earlier models of train. Kids will surely love the place. And entire museum area is super antique background for photos. When I visited., shocked to see multiple photo shoots across the place, but by the time I left the place., I got the point :) Lovely captures !! Proud moment to see these gigantic beauties. Hope it will be maintained well as is.
Glimpse of India Railways history & yesteryear's pride can be had from here. In simple a knowledge zone providing great perspective of Rails through decades. For all ages this surely proves to be an amazing place. Here there are display and arrangements of various vintage trains, gallery, toy train ride, information display etc.
If you like train its a lovely place to be. There are different types of Locomotives from across the era. It is really nice to see a part of the train history in the country. The toy train is a added enjoyment for the kids. The entry tickets are very reasonable. Though the aged look on the locomotives sort of highlights their historical heritage, the worry is that they shouldn't become extinct. They is a gift shop at the ticket counter.
