The National Rail Museum primarily focuses on preserving the rail heritage of the country. The Patiala State Mono Rail Tram way (PSMT) is perhaps the oldest mono rail concept, started in 1907, and NRM is in possession of the only steam mono-rail locomotive and coach in working condition. The oldest working steam locomotive “Fairy Queen” is one of the other exhibits, and figures in the Guinness Book of World Records. The only solid rubber tyre working vehicle “John Morris Fire Engine”, which is more than a 100 years old, is on display. Vintage exhibits such as Prince of Wales saloon, Mysore Maharaja saloon, a fireless steam locomotive, rail buses, rail cars, electric locos etc. are some of the preserved exhibits. The museum regularly conducts activities and programs for all ages, such as summer camps. Some of the other highlights at the museum are a miniature Indian rail model, and toy train rides.
