Penrhyn Castle Railway Museum

Set in the extensive stableblock of Penrhyn Castle, the museum houses a fine collection of historic locomotives and model railways including originals from the Penrhyn Quarry Railway and the Dinorwic Railway.

Among the many fascinating engines, the museum displays Fire Queen a 4ft gauge 0-4-0 coupled and Charles a 1ft 10¾in. 0-4-0 saddle tank, probably are the most famous engines on display. Throughout the year there are special events on which you can explore the exciting collection of railway memorabilia of the 19th and 20th century that are exhibited within the magnificent walls of Penrhyn Castle.
