New track for railway museum

Over the past 40 years, the mining industry in the Pilbara region of Western Australia has gone from strength to strength. And so has the transport system that drives the growth.

Rail transport of ore and minerals has provided the means to get material from the mines to the ports. The history of the railways and the locomotives that have worked on them, provide a telling story of the improvements in technology and engineering.

Many mining companies donated some of their historic locomotives for display at an open-air rail museum just outside Dampier, WA. But as the years have rolled on, the locos and displays have become run down.

Storybox was engaged to work with Rio Tinto, the railway museum society and other interested stakeholders to determine the best solution for long term use, access and preservation of these historic railway assets.
