The Electric Railway Museum is a charity who aim to promote the heritage of all electric trains in the UK through traction and rolling stock restoration, display and operation in addition to gathering photographic and technical archives with historic relevance. Their work is run entirely by volunteers and funded by public donations.
The site in Rowley Road, Baginton, has the largest collection of preserved electric trains in the UK, ranging from suburban multiple units, carriage bodies of Edwardian underground trains and industrial electric locomotives, to high speed express trains.
The earliest evidence for occupation at the Lunt site has been dated to around the time of the Boudican rebellion in AD60 - AD61. The Lunt is close to the junction of two major Roman roads, the Fosse Way and Watling Street. This whole area appears to have been a highly militarised zone with forts at Wall (Letocetum), Mancetter (Manduessedum), Alcester (Alauna) and Metchley. Tacitus recorded that the whole army was kept mobilised during the winter to quell any remnants of the Boudican uprising.
