Inside, a superb collection of old locomotives and other historic objects are on display. The exhibition is a living testament to the past of the Thai railway enterprise.Besides old steam locomotives, there are other vehicles such as London taxis and World War II Japanese patrol cars, as well as the first tram from 1892, with long passenger benches that run along the entire length of the tram. Rail carriages and various railway tools like the old fuel siphon and an early telegraph machine are also shown.
