The East Anglian Railway Museum, based just outside Colchester, Essex, is a Working Museum dedicated to preserving the history of railways in the Eastern Counties. The entire site, based at Chappel and Wakes Colne Railway station, forms the Museum, which is made up of Station Buildings, Signal Boxes, Goods Shed and Restoration Shed.

Open every day. On certain days special events take place, where you can have unlimited rides on the Museum's preserved Steam and Diesel Trains, we also hold regular Day Out With Thomas Events, also the popular Chappel Beer and Cider Festivals.
