Museum Collection


The museum currently has a large collection of small artefacts such as a large scale Gloucester Patent Bogie, books, Long Service Medal, model diorama's and Gloucester wagon plates. We are currently looking to purchase a Gloucester built wagon, which shall be the first of the museum's standard gauge rolling stock collection from the UK.

George Harley/David Hear Letter & Photograph of Workers (1906)

 

This photograph was originally shown to us at Gloucester Day/Gloucester Day Parade in Gloucester City Centre in 2017 and then to our surprise about a week later the photograph along with a description and letter was donated to ourselves by Mr David Kear, Grandson of George Harley.
