The Museum holds excellently refurbished Steam Trains and carriages. They act as an example of what runs just outside the building. The mueseum is housed in a refurbished part of the railway sheds once used to store the engines. There are less engines to store now, but the site sits right next door to the Port Erin Railway Station. A section of the building is still used for the continued maintenance of the trains running on the line. The museum offers a unique look at the history of trains and rolling stock from the 1870s to the present day.

Previous use of premises:


The Port Erin Railway Museum first opened in 1975 and was extensively refurbished in 1998. In 1996, the steam train Loch was taken out of service (re-commissioned in 2002) and shortly afterwards became a part of the Port Erin Railway Museum. In 1999 a gift shop was added and since then the site has seen many tourists and train enthusiasts.
