Merredin Museum and Historical Society Incorporated
Stand on the railway platform which once welcomed steam and diesel passenger trains. Imagine a time when rail travel was the cheapest and easiest way to travel. Be immersed in the fascinating history of the railway in Western Australia in the old Merredin Main Station Room and Refreshment room. The main railway building was used by the Station Masters and passengers awaiting travel. The collection includes items from the steam train era, through to more recent items from Westrail, the name of the WA Government Railways from 1975 to 2000. You can also browse the local history section of photographs and books from the Railway Institute of Merredin. Be sure to climb the steps of the tower to explore the original rail levers and enjoy the view over Merredin.
