Mangapps Railway Museum


Southminster Road,


Our museum houses an extensive collection of railway relics of all kinds, working steam and diesel locomotives, carriages, wagons, historic buildings and one of the largest collections of railway signalling equipment open to the public. Where possible items from the collection are displayed in the appropriate setting, for example in the restored station masters office at Mangapps station and the Lamp Hut. The vast majority of the collection may be seen under cover inside the Museum building. We offer train rides through pleasant countryside. Special events include Santa Special trains during December.
