The Walkaway Station Museum is an impressive museum which will be of great interest to any rail enthusiast or historian. Wander through the beautiful old railway station building to visualise how the station would have operated in the late 1800s. See where the station master lived and worked and learn about the history of this small community.

There are documents and memorabilia relating to the history of the Midland Railway Company. The museum also has records of local burials, family histories and photographs and other social history from the Walkaway area and surroundings. In the grounds there is an old locomotive called B6, the only one of its type left in the world. It is planned to put B6 in the Goods Shed (when refurbished) and other rolling stock will also be brought in for display.

MEMORIES OF RAIL TRAVEL - PROJECT

We are seeking information from people who have memories of times spent in and around trains.
We would love to interview anyone who would like to tell us about your experiences with rail,
even if it is just a small memory.

Please leave us your details via the CONTACT page if you would like to take part in this project to record people’s memories.
Alternatively you could phone Ric on 99233613.

We are grateful to the City of Greater Geraldton which has made this project possible.




Old Locomotive B6


The old ’B’ Class locomotive in the grounds of the Walkaway Museum
B6, the only one of its kind left in the world, is now in the old Goods Shed. We will be looking for volunteers
