The Yunnan Railway Museum is located at 913 Beijing Road, Kunming. It was established in the waiting room of Kunming North Railway Station. We arrived in Kunming by plane at noon, and the train departed to Lijiang at 11 o'clock in the evening. On the way from the airport to Kunming Railway Station, in order not to waste this spare time, we chose to visit this museum. The ticket price of the museum is 10 yuan, and you can get a half-price discount with your student ID. In addition, you can also enjoy a discount with a China Railway staff certificate. The ticket seller at the door was an old man who was very enthusiastic and introduced us a lot of knowledge about this museum. The museum is divided into three floors. The upper two floors mainly introduce to us the milestones of the Chinese railway construction through some historical photos and various tools related to the construction of railways. In Yunnan, the most famous is the Yunnan-Tibet line, and the museum also explained the difficulties for visitors. What’s more interesting is that some exhibition halls also display a variety of train attendant costumes from ancient times to the present. There are traditional and modern ones. Of course, the contrast is a small train model, from the original green pickup. Car to today's Harmony. In addition, on the wall of a corridor on the third floor, over a hundred art works of local primary school students in Yunnan are displayed. Through the immature pictures, we are all amazed by the creativity of the children. On the ground floor, there is the most famous exhibition in the entire museum-the 1:1 locomotive and carriage. Among them, the French Michelin internal combustion power train group is a national first-class cultural relic. This train is a high-end business train, put into operation in 1914, the tires are rubber, and it was reserved for senior officials of China and France. In addition, there are also the first domestic steam locomotives, as well as the progressively developed EMUs. It's a pity that every train is forbidden to enter, which dispels our idea of entering and shooting. There is also a cafe in the museum for visitors to rest, but due to the tight time, we couldn't enjoy it. In addition, friends who plan to step on the railroad tracks to take beautiful photos in the museum should also pay attention to the fact that the staff in the museum will be prohibited from going up for safety reasons.

Right next to Kunming North Railway Station, the narrow-gauge locomotive and rolling stock pavilion has also moved here, forming a large scale. Not to mention that although the contemporary railway construction of Yunnan Province lags behind most parts of the east, it was another developed scene before the liberation. The Yunnan-Vietnam Railway and the Gebishi Railway were narrow-gauge railways in the form of meters and inches. Line, well-known at home and abroad. Most of the space in the museum presents such a glorious history. There are many steam locomotives and old-fashioned cars on display in the vehicle museum, which is very chronological.
