Railway Museum


Railway Museum, Freetown

History has it that the railway network in Sierra Leone was discontinued in 1975. During those days railway cars and engines used to run from Freetown to Pendembu and Makeni. The Railway Museum, Freetown has a large number of displays and exhibits to illustrate the history of railways. The museum holds in its collections several of the steam engines and railway cars.

The museum has a collection of 2’6” gauge railway equipment from the former Sierra Leone Railway that once connected Freetown to to Pendembu via the second principal city of Bo, and to the major town of Makeni.

All exhibits are under restoration by local skilled employees, with guidance and support by the UK National Railway Museum and its Director, Commander Steve Davies MBE.
