The Tashkent Museum of Railway Engineering, popularly known as the Museum of Steam Locomotives, was opened on August 4, 1989 on the Day of Railway Worker. And this exhibition was preceded by this solemn event in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Central Asian Railway in 1988. Residents of the city and guests of the capital were so impressed by the exhibits presented that at their request it was decided to save the exhibition.
The collection series includes 13 train models, starting from the first in the history of the Central Asian region of the locomotive. There is a "trophy" copy in the museum's collection confiscated from German invaders during the Second World War. There are also about 18 models of diesel locomotives and 3 electric locomotives, wagons and samples of repair and construction equipment used in everyday life in the 20th century. In general, the collection of the museum has 53 members.
The territory of the museum is shady and well-groomed thanks to the efforts of its employees. Those who wish can even get inside some cars, where they will see firsthand how the carriages are arranged from the inside. You can also make wonderful pictures for memory.
