Interpretive Resources

The collection and historical notes describe the museum's collection and explain Queensland's rail heritage. They've generally been written a high school level and are guides to finding further information in the historical sources.

A large selection of photographs are available on the Collection/Photos page.

Archival Material

The Museum also has a small archival collection (newspaper clippings, journal articles, etc.) which is slowly being digitised. Most documents have been scanned, often from photocopies, thus quality varies. Files are generally in pdf format with quite large file sizes for longer documents.

Exhibit and Library Listings

The Technical Books, General Books and Rules and Timetables are normally available for viewing at the Museum, although advance notice may be required. Items on the Exhibit Catalogue may be on current display or have been rotated into storage. Check before visiting if you want to see something specific.
