Jokioinen Museum Railway

The Jokioinen Museum Railway is located in Jokioinen, Finland. It is based on the last narrow gauge railway in Finland, the 750 mm (2 ft 5 1⁄2 in) gauge Jokioinen Railway.

The museum was born on February 2, 1978, 4 years after the discontinued operation of the actual railway, when the specifically established Joint stock company Jokioinen Museum Railway Ltd. (Jokioisten Museorautatie Oy) have bought the Minkiö-Jokioinen Railway line with its land and buildings. Museum steam train began running the same year. In 1994 the line was extended with a 8 km stretch between Minkiö and Humppila.

The museum railway station at Humppila is beside the station of the Turku-Toijala VR line, providing a convenient access to the museum.

The Minkiö station has a narrow gauge museum with a collection of carriages and locomotives. There are a number other attractions in the vicinity of the railway.
