You can't tell the story of Queensland without mentioning the enormous impact and opportunities rail brought to the state.

A10 No6 locomotive Your support helps us preserve Queensland's rail heritage, like the A10 No 6, Australia's oldest working steam locomotive. You can see it on display in All aboard.

As well as honouring the contribution made by the Ipswich Railway Workshops to Queensland's development, The Workshops Rail Museum fosters an understanding and appreciation of rail through research, exhibitions, public programs and displays.

You too can be part of Queensland's rail story by donating to the Queensland Museum Foundation.

Your support will assist us in preserving and presenting our rail heritage: past, present and future.
