An old railway station in Tasmania's north-east has been transformed into a quirky museum as part of a plan to revive the region's transport heritage.
In its 1940s heyday, St Marys was a bustling coal town and transport hub.
Now its 126-year-old railway station has been reopened as a museum, celebrating the town's industrial heritage.
Curator Ian Summers said it was a trip down memory lane.
"Instead of a couple of interests, there's about 50," he said.
"This building now looks a bit like the inside of my head."
The Break O' Day Mayor Sarah Schmerl said she hoped it would encourage more tourists to stop at St Marys.
"This area was seen to have historical interest and this was something they were asking for," she said.
The next project will be a working vintage car display.
The long term goal is to restore the train line to nearby Fingal.
