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.
To meet the growing demand of visitors we have decided to open every Second Sunday each month from April to October, with additional special open weekends throughout the year. The Electric Railway Museum website can be found at www.electricrailwaymuseum.co.uk where dates are listed for the open weekends. During these weekends, additional attractions are brought onto the site and extra items are available for viewing and visitors can enjoy train rides on our all electric miniature railway.
