About National Rail Museum

From the Maharani Saloon Carriage to an Austin rail-motor car, inspection cars to royal coaches, you get to feast your eyes on the vintage vehicles at the Rail Museum of Mysore. This attraction in Mysore is one of its kind having outdoor exhibits of ancient locomotives. Sri Ranga Pavilion, two royal coaches, belonging to Maharaja of Mysore and dating back to 1899, is the highlight of this Museum. It also features Chamundi Gallery that showcases numerous paintings and black & white photos on the growth of railways in India. A steam engine, steam water pump and signaling accessories from the earlier times are put on display as well. For kids, there is a battery operated mini-train here that provides a short ride on the grounds.
