These pages support the Bulawayo Railway Museum, and include details of nearly all of the major exhibits. The museum
is situated behind the Bulawayo Railway Station, in the Raylton suburb of Bulawayo in western Zimbabwe. Access is
possible via the pedestrian footbridge at the station. The museum is located in an area that was previously a workshop
used in the maintenance of refrigeration wagons.

The Museum is owned by the National Railways of Zimbabwe. Opened in 1972, the Museum displays a wealth of small
exhibits and models as well as steam and diesel electric locomotives.
