Fell Locomotive Museum

The Museum houses the world's only surviving 'Fell' locomotive, which worked on New Zealand's steepest railway line, the Rimutaka Incline, from 1878 to 1955. It also displays the only remaining Rimutaka Incline 'Fell' brake-van. The locomotive and van are surrounded by models, photographs and memorabilia from the Rimutaka Incline and Wellington-Masterton railway. Films of the Incline are screened in a theatrette, including the wide-screen, surround-sound presentation Rimutaka 1949. A wide range of souvenirs, including books, DVDs, postcards, magnets and other practical items, are available from the sales counter.
