Back in Madrid, one of my goals is to visit the Railway Museum. When I was a kid I used to visit this place quite a few times, so also I wanted to revive those memories :)

In the pic, a huge 242F-2009 "Confederación" locomotive, from 1956. The latest steam locomotive on Spain's tracks.

Not only you can enjoy a wide collection of locomotives and cars. The station itself is a big part of this great collection.

Talgo II locomotive. This domestically produced Talgo models were a big boost for high-speed trains in Spain. A big innovation at those old times!

The design of the Talgo II cars really reflects how the future would look back in 1950.
