Some really interesting engines and carridges that are really accessible. Nice shaded sheds for viewing some fantastic ornate wood panelling.

Probably the largest collection of locomotives of all kinds I've seen anywhere. A pity that they're silent and static though I think tere are some steaming days. There is some interesting old rolling stock too.

Nice collection of Spanish trains from different ages. Some of them are accessible. Our 4 year old son liked this museum very much. Pretty children room near the ticket office. Easy to come from train station nearby.

I have never thought trains and funiculars might be so interesting. This place is definitively worth visiting. The staff is very halpful and it's clear they know what they talk about. Especially good attraction was visiting the luxury railway carriage.
