Abstract

The railway heritage in New South Wales is very extensive. It encompasses the complete range of materials and items which have been associated with the railways, including many very fine examples of engineering technology. The management of this vast wealth of heritage today is made especially challenging by operational imperatives and changing standards in matters of safety and economy. In order to reconcile conflicting values and provide for the most appropriate care of the railway heritage a management strategy, based on current conservation principles, is being followed. The implementation of this strategy will lead ultimately to the development of an open air museum of railway technology, with exhibits dispersed over the full extent of the state's historic rail network.
