There are various displays both of photographs and artefacts depicting the railways of Buchan, and two railway vehicles including a prison carriage from the Peterhead Harbour of Refuge line used to carry convicts to work at Stirlinghill Quarries. Also of interest is a small exhibition commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Flying Scotsman which is scheduled to visit Aberdeen in July.

Over the winter there have been upgrades to displays and retail area, but local volunteers with suitable skills are always sought, particularly painting, joinery and ground maintenance.
