National Railway Museum Port Adelaide SA

Hi All
In January my girlfriend Rachel and I went for a holiday to South Australia and one of the many highlights was the National Railway Museum in Port Adelaide. With many locos and pieces of rolling stock housed under three big sheds and more outside, it is quite impressive. There was so much there, I hope I didn't miss anything!
It was great to see the 500 class steam loco and the 930 class ALCO up close..
The facility was clean and well set up and it was really good to see how the South Aussies manage a train museum.  
504 the big 4-8-4
