I visited while my wife was working nearby just to kill half an hour..woops stayed 2hrs lucky my wife was busy..phew... There are three sites to visit
1 railway museum on Wagga Wagga station platform right side near bridge. It is full of photos and memorabilia and Peter is very informative and knowledgeable. It costs a donation of $2 to help the running of preservation society a further $2 will get you access to the larger dispay items located a short walk over "Mothers Bridge" where the informative Sue and hubby Ken will take you through the displays. See photos of some of the items. This has 2 sheds full of stuff including display materials. You can see them restoring old items by another gent which I didn't get a name for sorry.. visit their website for more info.
Open from 11am to 2.30pm most days
The third shed houses a model rail layout(s) but is only open Wednesday's or first Saturday of the month. Sadly i visited on a friday. Again over the bridge but left 100m
Unfortunately for this society and others in NSW means that there is no heritage railways due to to much nanny state regulations. If you want to ride a steam train come to Melbourne plenty of different ones available and i don't mean Puffing Billy ( a good commercial one running in the Dandenongs).
I highly recommend this attraction to all rail enthusiasts and for those wishing a bit of history.
