Trainworks is in Thirlmere, only an hour south west of Sydney and in easy reach of Canberra, Wollongong and the South Coast. Since 1975 the Thirlmere site has been home to a significant collection of rail heritage items and with the upgrade of facilities and recent opening of the new exhibition building is now a major regional heritage attraction.
