The Sierra Leone National Railway Museum was established by Col. Steve Davies MBE, Deputy Commander of the International Military Advisory Training Team (IMATT) in Sierra Leone, working in his spare time with a team of fifteen young unemployed Sierra Leoneans.
Together they have transformed a shed of locomotives, abandoned since abolition of the State railway in 1974, into the country’s first railway museum (and second national museum).  It includes a coach built for the State Visit of HM The Queen in 1961.
