Just a few kilometers from the heart of federal capital, there lies a heritage, still unknown to even vast majority residing in the capital and adjacent Rawalpindi - the Golra Junction Railway Museum. A station that once linked Peshawar, Kohat and Havalian, the Museum presents glimpses from the contours of history. Set up in 1882 and upgraded as junction in 1912, the Golra Railway Station today enjoys more importance due to Museum. Situated South East to Margalla Hills and 1994 feet above sea level, the Golra Railway Museum is at a few minutes drive from the federal capital and 17 kilometers towards East from Taxila, the cradle of Gandhara civilization. No doubt, Golra Railways Station, the culture heritage of the country, is an asset but it needs to be preserved and equipped with modern facilities to attract the visitors and facilitate them. Due to improper facilities and lack of promotion, Golra Junction Railway Museum failed to attract visitors even from twin cities. The first-time visitors often get astray on way to museum as no signboards have been installed in surroundings to guide them. The trial of visitors start after their entry into the museum area when they cannot find any proper place to park their vehicle. The natural character of the site is rich to the extent that one can sit under the trees throughout the day, fascinating the tranquility and serenity of the atmosphere.
