A quiet drive brings you to an impressive driveway that will take you to the old station - plenty of parking I spent some time wandering around the station looking at artifacts before going over to the engine shed I will be back

We accidentally stumbled on this place and worth a visit if you're into trains. The entrance is free but donations are accepted. There's a small gift shop and lots of history of this railway.

This was an interesting visit which highlighted the brief history of the 'Railway' in this area. It was a shame though, that due to the expansion of the 'Super Pit' they were unable to offer anything associated with a ride on the railway.

Visited on a very quiet Saturday afternoon. Appears to be run by enthusiasts. The displays in the old offices are wonderful and give a glimpse of life back 'in the day'

The museum is located at the old station in Boulder. The Loopline used to transport people etc between Boulder and Kalgoorlie back in the day.
