The Natal Railway Museum is in the sweet, misty town of Hilton in KwaZulu Natal. Located at the Hilton station and next to what used to be the main railway line between Durban and Johannesburg.
This line is over 125 years old and unfortunately hasnít been used for over a decade but the museum is hoping to change all that with plans to run trips from the station through the beautiful Natal Midlands Countryside to Howick Falls.
A monthly fleamarket will also be held. The museum itself has displays of various railway memorabilia and antiques, including silverware from the famous Blue Train, an old steam locomotive lamp and the train token system that was used in days gone by.
