Vintage cars at the East Anglian Railway Museum


We're very excited to announce that our annual Transport Extravaganza has been enhanced for 2023!

For the first time ever, our Transport Extravaganza will share the stage with our annual Home Fleet Steam Gala. Soak up the atmosphere and feast your eyes on some great transport themed exhibits, from classic cars, vintage motorbikes, military vehicles, kit cars and modern rare head turners.

And for steam lovers, enjoy the sounds and smells of the age of steam where all of our avaliable steam locomotives from our home fleet will be in operation. A must for all vehicle and train lovers to gear up for an event of their dreams. Visitors will have the chance to have unlimited rides all day on passenger and freight trains hauled by all of our avaliable steam locomotives from our home fleet.

Also included as part of your admission are vintage bus rides to Bures railway station and back, about a 35 minute round trip.

The Museum opens at 10.00 until 17.00 and we operate unlimited train rides between 10.30 – 16.30. Our Miniature Railway will be running giving unlimited rides, and our friends from the Braintree and Halsted Model Railway Club will have their club rooms open, with a large number of layouts on display.
