Overview
More
Magic mon del tren is a venue dedicated to the hobby of collecting and model-making. This new facility in our country attempts to introduce the unknown miniature train world to the general public of any age. Josep Arumi Bou has been a Marklin train collector since 1984. During all this time he has been making up an important collection of locomotives and passenger and freight cars in gauge HO (1:87) together with other gauge 1 elements. On the ground floor of his house he had several glass cabinets containing a part of this collection and two gauge HO layouts. The oldest one, built in 1991 using M railway tracks, recreated the stream railway world. The other one, more recently built using K and C railway tracks, recreated the modern electric traction railway. His dearest wish to expand his collection and to go on working with railway models and layouts, together with his aim to show it to both model train enthusiasts and to the general public, led him to design and build a big railway center: Magic mon del tren (The magical world of trains). It hosts his private collection and two big layouts: a gauge HO operating layout and a gauge 1 layout under construction. This exhibition (museum) is placed in a modern three-story building of 1000 m2 . It meets all the safety and access standards and it is well-equipped with the latest technologies.

Yesterday, me and my friend from Amèrica went to "Màgic Món del tren". I had already seen it last year but some things where different. We both enjoyed a lot, Josep, the director, is very friendly and funny. It was fantastic!
