The Inchanga Railway Museum is a perfect venue to visit on weekend drive. Situated just a stone’s throw from the railway station and Inchanga, the old Station Master’s House is now home to the railway museum celebrating KwaZulu-Natal’s rail heritage.

About Us

The Inchanga Station precinct, on the old main railway line between Botha’s Hill & Cato Ridge, which includes the old Station Master’s House, railway sheds and yards, is in its entirety a heritage site. The Station was opened for traffic in 1892 after the old Inchanga viaduct was closed and the route was re-aligned. The Station and stationmaster’s house were built in 1895.

The Inchanga Railway Museum, which houses mainly smaller items, is operated and manned by volunteer members of the KZN Railway History Society. It relies solely on donations given by visitors.

The Museum is only open on days when Umgeni Steam Railway operates train trips between Kloof & Inchanga. For the next running day please see

An upgrade of the Museum commenced in 2018. Come and enjoy a trip down memory line.

We are always in need of volunteers to assist us, so if you have time to spare please contact us.
