Established in October 2003, the museum is truly one of its kind. Not limited to a closed hall, it includes old locomotive trains, steam engines, and lifters stationed at the platform.

A very passionately refurbished old railway station between Pindi and Islamabad, where ex-railway staff put together their collection of old paraphernalia in a veru nice museum on site and guide you through the train compartments, too.
