East Anglian Railway Museum

The East Anglian Railway Museum is located at Chappel and Wakes Colne railway station in Essex, which is situated on the former Great Eastern Railway branch line from Marks Tey to Sudbury. Services on the Sudbury Branch Line are operated by National Express East Anglia.

The Museum has a wide collection of locomotives and rolling stock, some of which are fully restored while others are undergoing repair and restoration. The Restoration Shed was built in 1983-4, prior to which most work had to take place in the Goods Shed or in the open. On event days, steam train rides are operated over a short demonstration track.

The Museum also plays host to two popular annual events: the Cider Festival held each June, and the Beer Festival held each September. During the festivals, additional late-evening trains on the Sudbury Branch Line allow festival-goers to return home by train.
