East Anglian Railway Museum, Wakes Colne

The East Anglian Railway Museum (EARM) is a living heritage site based at Chappel railway station. They are  on the edge of Constable Country and adjacent to one of the largest railway viaducts in Eastern England.

The complex of original Victorian buildings has an interesting story to tell of railways and people’s lives in East Anglia from the 1840s through to the 21st century.

The Museum has the most comprehensive collection of railway architecture, locomotives and first-hand accounts of people who worked on the railways. The impressive site includes original and restored station buildings, carriages, signal boxes, a goods shed and a fully functioning restoration shed.

They have some great events throughout the year including vintage vehicle days, beer festivals and yes, even Thomas the Tank Engine days……

EARM is an accredited museum and part of the European Route of Industrial Heritage.

The EARM is also a  Visit Britain Quality Assured Visitor Attraction.
