Calling all Narrogin Railway Enthusiasts

Published on Tuesday, 21 June 2022 at 2:46:19 PM

The Shire of Narrogin is calling on any local railway enthusiasts who might have rail memorabilia that relates to the Narrogin Railway Station or Great Southern Railway that they are willing to donate for display at the Station when it opens later in the year.

The Railway Station is currently undergoing restoration and renovation, and when finished will be the home to the Visitor Information Centre, as well as a display of railway memorabilia and a bespoke locally made and world class ‘n scale’ miniature, fully operational model railway, depicting the CBD and railways of Narrogin, as it was in the 1960’s. 

The Shire will start its Railway collection with artefacts generously being donated by the Evanis family.  Ernie Evanis worked at the Narrogin Railway Station for over 35 years, and his son David has written a book about him.

For more information, or to discuss potential artefacts or memorabilia donations to be accessioned into a managed and displayed collection, please contact Community Development Officer Sharon Bell on 9890 0900 or email
