Its collection of about 20 locomotives consists primarily of early diesels, although there are three steam locomotives, the largest of them a 2-8-0, some of which can be operated. There is also a fireless steam locomotives and various carriages and other items of railway equipment. The exhibition area principally illustrates the operation of the line between Toijala and Turku.
