About Vilanova I La Geltreu Railway Museum

Views: 260. Updated: Oct 7, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

The Museum is located in the original installations of the steam locomotive depot of Vilanova i la Geltru. In September 1972, the 19th Congress of European Railroad Modelers (MOROP) was held as an exhibition of steam locomotives in the depot, which had been previously closed in 1967.

When the Congress was held, the vehicles were separated and the buildings were closed until 1980, when the various public institutions involved (RENFE, Generalitat de Catalunya and Vilanova i la Geltru Town Council) were interested in the creation of a Railway Museum in Catalonia, which opened its doors back in 1990.

Today, the museum has more than fifty vehicles of all kinds: numerous electric locomotives, diesel and passenger cars of various types, including the complete composition of the Centenary Train, a replica of the first train that circulated Iberian Peninsula in 1848, and the first Talgo train. Also is an indoor museum with exhibits from the switching parts of the rail network.
