Description

the Rail Museum was set up in 1979 by Indian Railways is the second such museum after the National Railway Museum in Delhi. The Mysore Railway Museum was the one-of-a-kind outdoor exhibit of locomotives in India. It has locomotives and a gallery of photographs and paintings depicting the growth of railways in India. Railway signals and lights are also displayed. The museum has a battery-operated mini-train giving a short ride for children on the grounds. Situated at Krishnaraja Sagar Road, just 250 Meters from Mysore Junction and just 2 KM from the world-famous Mysore Palace, and 3.5 KM away from Mysore Zoo the museum set a good pattern for regional display and has a good collection.

The highlight here is the Chamundi Gallery that showcases a unique and interesting collection of photographs and paintings depicting the development of the railways. Don't miss the Sri Ranga Pavilion, which has two royal coaches. These coaches belonged to the Maharaja of Mysore and give you an idea about the grand fashion in which the royalty traveled. Another interesting display in the Rail Museum is the Maharani’s saloon carriage that has a kitchen, dining car unit and royal toilet dating back to 1899. Most of the exhibits in the museum were once housed in Mysore Palace. The first steam engine that was built is exhibited here and has been conserved very well. Among the other things exhibited here are steam engines, signals, etc. The museum also has a battery-operated mini-train that takes you on a ride around the grounds of the museum. This toy train is the key attraction for small children.
