The former North East Junction Signal box is one of the buildings at the Inveresk site

The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery is located at a number of sites in the northern city of Launceston, and has many items of railway interest.

Parts of the former Inveresk Railyards have been converted to house the museum. The former carpenters shop now features a railway exhibit, including locomotive Y3, a number of wagons and a collection of smaller items. Some of the workshop buildings, such as the blacksmiths shop and weighbridge, are open for inspection.

There is also a Community History Museum, which holds some records, photographs and other items of railway interest.

A full rollingstock list may be found here
