Queensland's railways in miniature at the Workshops Rail Museum, Ipswich

The museum's large model railway is an obvious attraction for children and adults. Industries included highlight every QR operation from mining to tourism and range from outback to seaport.

The sugar industry, for example, is represented on the model layout... from cane farm to narrow gauge cane transport to the mill (above), and QR's bulk sugar transport to a nearby port.
