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

Electric Railway Museum Spring Gala Weekend

Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 May

10.30 am – 4.30 pm (both days)


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.
