Formerly the Birmingham Railway Museum, this location is now a commercial enterprise called Tyseley Locomotive Works. This working steam railway yard is open to the public on specific open days and will thrill railroad buffs with its excellent collection of locomotives including the GWR "Castle" class, an LMS "Jubilee" class engine and three GWR Pannier tank locomotives.TLW is also the home to Vintage Trains steam excusrions and The Shakespeare Express. Vintage Trains run steam-hauled day excursions throughout the year, utilising it's own and guest steam locomotives.The Shakespeare Express (seperate trip-advisor) runs a scheduled steam hauled service from Birmingham to Stratford and return twice every summer Sunday.
