Goyagate – Pratapnagar Railway Museum – Vadodara
Railway Museum was inaugrated on 27th January 1997 by Shri V.K. Agrawal, Member of Railway Board.
Housed as part of the club house in the railway colony at Pratapnagar, the Pratapnagar Railway Museum lies at the end of the Heritage Walk.
The Heritage Gallery at the museum houses antiques from the days of the GBSR; signaling boxes, portable generators and even cutlery, all in mint condition.
Browse through documents and time tables, or photographs of historic steam engines that worked the GBSR lines. There is also a wagon room dedicated to the specially designed saloon cars used by the Maharaja to travel across his railways.
The newly opened narrow gauge and popular culture gallery will hold your attention with its colorful depictions of railways in film, fiction and art. Gaze in wonderment at how India’s tribes depict the train in their ritual paintings, or be enthralled by the fascinating story of the birth and growth of narrow gauge railways the world over. Don’t miss one of the Lumiere brothers early films, ‘Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat’ while visiting the museum.
• Timing: The Museum is open from 10 AM to 1 PM from Tuesday to Friday and 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday and Sunday. Closed on Mondays.
