Take a journey into railway history at the National Railway Museum, Australia's largest railway museum with over 100 exhibits representing State, Commonwealth and private railway operators on the three major rail gauges used in Australia.

Climb into the cabs of giant steam engines, walk through elegant carriages, enjoy free train rides and interactive and educational displays.

Why not take a ride on the Semaphore to Fort Glanville Tourist Railway? It runs:

  • Every Sunday and Public Holiday from October to April (inclusive)
  • Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday of the School Holidays in September/October, December/January, and April.

Steam trains will depart between 11am and 4pm, roughly every hour or at frequencies varied according to demand.

Rail Yard Silent Auction

NRM Members & Volunteers Special Night - Friday 12th June

NRM is pleased to announce a great opportunity for NRM Members and Volunteers.  To acknowledge your support a special night will take place at NRM Port Adelaide, commencing at 6.00pm Friday 12th June.

A Silent Auction of selected railway artefacts and memorabilia (numbering about 100 items) will be run through to close at 9.00pm.  At the close of the silent auction the highest bidder (subject to reserve pricing) will be able to pay for and take their treasured item home.

At leisure, simply write down your bid and contact details...then watch the progress, and you can rebid by easily writing down another higher bid.

Only NRM Members and Volunteers will have entry, on the production of their Membership Card and/or Volunteer Identity Card.  There is no cost.  The full price of your successful bid will need to be paid on the night.

DO NOT miss this first opportunity, before the Rail Yard Auction on Saturday 13th June - which will have a minimum of 200 other additional artefacts and memorabilia.

For any further information, please contact NRM.  See you on the night!
