DS 2 years old is mad about trains. I know there is a train museum in WA somewhere but Im not sure if he would get much out of it. Does anyone know where I can take a 2 year old to see some trains and maybe get a ride on a mini train?

Bassendean - near the train Line. Can't think of the name of it. Like a train museum.

Whitmans Park - can hire out train carriages / platform for birthdays. ( Lots of fun + they take you for a ride).

On certain days - they do train rides too. $3 / $5 type tix.

There is also the place in Balcatta that does the miniature train rides once a month, similar to castledare.

I can't remember where my MIL went but she took DS1 out for the day to ride in an old train, I think Pinjarra, they had a great time (it did derail on them though lol so took a tad longer than expected).

The one at Bassendean is the Railway Museum - this is fabulous for little train lovers!

You could even get the train there!
