Ipswich Railway Workshop Museum

Ipswich Railway Workshop Museum

Just had a week visit from daughter and son in law so many things put on the back burner but not completely I did get some time cutting with the SCMS that will all be revealed at a latter date.
It was a great time spent together our first outing was John’s choice to the Queensland/Ipswich Rail Workshop Museum. 
The display is still growing just a shame that no access is allowed through the main repair and blacksmith shops. They do have a resident blacksmith a female and she was there on the day, this for me would have added to the guided tour we had through the restoration shop.
Still the exhibits are all excellent many accessible even in a wheelchair although some not in side.

There is on display some of the tools which were used in building the carriages as well as the rolling stock.

It’s not often you get to see the Pattern Makers work this has to be the most extensive display I have seen and there is a whole lot more.
