Steam Engine Collection

The origins of Bressingham Steam Museum started in 1961 when Alan Bloom purchased Burrell general purpose traction engine Bertha, within 2 years he collected 13 traction engines and steam rollers.

He then shifted his focus to railways, constructing the railways at Bressingham and collecting railway engines.

Many of Alan Blooms early acquisitions remain at the museum and are on display to the public. The museum displays a wide variety of steam engines from very small toy steam models, through to standard gauge steam engines, traction engines, stationary engines, road rollers and boats. 

The museum collection is housed and displayed in various exhibition buildings throughout the site.
