|Cyprus Railways Museum |
The Cyprus Railways Museum is housed in the old railway station near Evrychou village, in the Troodos mountains.
The Cyprus Government Railway (CGR), which was in operation from 1905 to 1951, extended from Famagusta in the east to Morfou in the west, passing through the island’s capital, Lefkosia. The southern terminal of the third section of the CGR was at Evrychou, coming from Morfou. From the station only the main building has survived, and has been restored by the Department of Antiquities.
The Evrychou station is now a Railways Museum, one of its kind on the island. Original documents, drawings, photos and various objects related to the Cyprus railways are exhibited in the Museum Rooms, as well as scale models of the main stations and rolling stock.
At the rear side of the Museum the platform and part of the track have been reconstructed and the original rails have been used. A hand pump track used for the inspection of the line and a freight wagon are exhibited under a shed in the yard.
There is signage for the museum. When you reach Evrychou village follow the brown signposts with the inscription “Railway Museum” from the main road to the Museum.
