Train enthusiasts from far and wide will be gathering at the Bassendean Railway Museum on Sunday 14 October for the annual RailFest. As the only railway museum in Western Australia it boasts a magnificent collection of vintage rolling stock, restored federation carriages, miniature trains and whole range of books and videos.
The museum is open every week on Sundays and Wednesdays, but at the Railfest they all get scrubbed up to meet you, they offer tours behind the scenes, swap meet stalls, there is a bbq, you can meet some of the authors and see the model trains going full steam ahead.
When you get up close to some of these old engines their sheer size is quite impressive.
