"A full size railway is a dream come true, a homage to the railway which once served the island so well.

On Thursdays, the clock is turned back and you may travel in the two Victorian coaches drawn by steam from the platform of the Victorian style station.

The Museum also has on display locomotives and rolling stock which are not pictured above, they are as follows:
La Meuse – Built in Belgium in 1931.  In the great age of steam on the railways of Great Britain, one of the most popular and widely reproduced engine layouts for freight working was the six wheeled or 0-6-0 tender locomotive. With all wheels available for adhesion, two inside cylinders, and either Joy or Stephenson valve gear, it proved a sound arrangement.
This standard gauge (4’8 ½”) 0-6-0 tank engine is relatively uncommon in having outside cylinders and Walschaerts valve gear.  She was later used for coal hauling in Brussels along La Meuse river near Liege.  After lying derelict for 30 years she was brought to Jersey in 1987 and rebuilt by Mr Pallot’s engineers.  In commercial use, and carrying full boiler pressure, she would have had a maximum tractive effort (or drawbar pull) in the region of 18,000 lbs – or 8 tons.
The North London Railway as it was called from 1853 onwards, passed through the suburbs of Victoria, London, and was very much a commuter passenger line, the stations being on average some three minutes traveling time apart.

The city terminus was Broad Street and the line ran from Richmond in the South West to Stratford and thence on to Poplar Docks in the East.

The coaching stock was all of the four wheeled variety and in order to get as many coaches as possible into the station platforms was made up as close coupled ‘block trains’.  The finish was varnished teak and these particular coaches are thought to date from just before the turn of the century.
In 1989 they were brought to the Museum for restoration, with under-frame material and wheels coming from the well known railway scrap yard of Woodham Bro's., Barry, South Wales.
