Rail enthusiasts in Coventry, Warwickshire and beyond are gearing up for a treat in May, as award-winning Electric Railway Museum opens for its first Open Weekend of the year, allowing visitors of all ages to explore its rich collection of iconic transport. Electric Railway Museum’s Spring Gala Weekend will take place on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 May from 10.30 am – 4.30 pm both days. Admission is FREE!
2014 sees Electric Railway Museum welcome its newest site attraction, a 7 ¼ inch gauge miniature railway. Offering rides to both young and old alike, the miniature railway is located by the new entrance gate, adjacent to the car park.
As well as the new miniature railway, the Class 457 experimental three phase unit, 67300, will be opened to the public for the first time in preservation following a lengthy restoration. Built in 1981 by British Railways in York, it is the last example of its Class to have survived.
