The Station Museum

Glenfinnan Station Museum

provides a journey into the past of rail travel in the West Highlands whilst remaining an operational railway station. It is run by a local charitable Trust, and tells the story of the West Highland Railway, its construction and development from 1889 till today. In the summer months, the station plays host to the Jacobite Steam Train on its way to Mallaig, and two of the Museum’s historic vehicles now provide accommodation and dining facilities for visitors.

Visit for a nostalgic interlude, browse in the well-stocked souvenir shop, and find out why and how the Glenfinnan Viaduct was built by “Concrete Bob” McAlpine. Click on the picture for more information about the museum.

Dining Car

This seasonally operated Dining car provides wonderful home baking throughout the day. The Dining car was originally coach No. 3767 and was moved to its present site in 1992. The first operator ran it as a small art gallery along with a small tearoom. Over the years it has developed into a place of warm welcome and fine food. It is an ideal place to stop and relax with good company.
