Following our series of photographing pieces of our History, we propose you enjoying this morning with trains. Sheldon Cooper would not miss it, would you?

The museum contains a selection of vehicles and other railway-related exhibits which aims to show the historical evolution of this mode of transport. Its fundamental purposes are to convey the reality of the railway, both past and present, promote an appreciation and understanding of rail transport, encourage railway-related research and enhance the railway heritage, all in the spirit of public service.

The Museum offers the visitor an impressively comprehensive collection of vintage rolling stock. The station’s Central Hall houses a diverse range of locomotives and passenger coaches, which not only illustrate the development of traction (steam, electric and diesel) over more than Protected content of Spanish railway history, but also provide an insight into the different conditions in which passengers travelled on these trains. Both sides of this central area open on to several themed exhibit rooms devoted to old station clocks, model railways –featuring working scale models– and railway infrastructure, where basic constituent elements, such as the track, are explained. On the outer tracks the visitor will find the Algodor interlocking and its signal bridge, a unique part of our industrial heritage which, after entering into operation in Protected content , was used to control point switching and signalling; and the museum’s cafeteria, installed in a Protected content coach.
