Welcome to the Electric Railway Museum Online

'In Britain today more passenger journeys will be made by electric traction than any
other form, but only at one location can you see the heritage of this success story.'


Electric Railway Museum is a UK based charity who aim to promote the heritage of all electric trains in the UK through traction and rolling stock restoration, display and operation along with work in gathering historically relevant technical and photographic archives. Our work is entirely run by volunteers and funded by donations from the public.

We are located in Baginton, on the outskirts of the City of Coventry. On our site you will find the largest collection of preserved electric trains in the UK, ranging from industrial electric locomotives, suburban multiple units, Edwardian underground train carriage bodies to high speed express trains.

We hope you find this website useful and informative. If you would like to know more about any specific activities, current or future projects then please feel free to get in touch with us; details can be found on the Contact Us page of this site.

Thank you
