The Museum is open on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 11am -3pm


We would love to be able to open more often, but at present we do not have enough volunteer stewards to be able to do so. You can find out more about helping to open the museum more often by emailing bcrscontact@gmail.com




Come along to one of our open days and meet like minded people. Take a look around our centre. Browse the second hand railway books for sale in the G.W.R. Banana Van all at £2 each. Follow the progress of the Bishop`s Castle Station circa 1932 OO gauge layout.
We hold a comprehensive collection of photographs and information about the Bishop`s Castle Railway. Take a look around our museum, talk to the volunteers, learn how the coming of the railway changed the lives of a small rural community.
If you like what you see, consider supporting us to continue taking on new projects and providing a place for everyone to meet.
