The story of The Plains Vintage Railway and Historical Museum begins nearly 130 years ago, in May 1878. It was in this year that the first section of the branch line railway that would in time become the ‘Mt Somers Branch in Mid Canterbury and later, operating on the first approximately 3 kilometres – to the old Frasers Road railway crossing – The Plains Railway was laid. Pioneer village, weatherboard cottages, blacksmith forge, railway station and replica shops form part of the attraction. Located in the adjoining village of Tinwald.
