Sorry not sorry, I just can’t resist a railway museum. So when Danny told me to try out the Museo del Ferrocarril de Madrid Delicias, I did.

The benchmark is the National Railway Museum (NRM) in York, England. Danny or I should write something about NRM at some point. We visited in 2015. In the meantime you can read our posts about Train World in Brussels, Belgium and about the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento.

The Museo del Ferrocarril de Madrid Delicias is located in the disused Delicias railway station. The address is Paseo de Delicias and it’s in the Atocha neighbourhood.

The exhibition area isn’t huge, but you get to see several engines, EMU’s  and coaches.

Most explanation plaques are in Spanish, except the small exhibit on Talgo. The museum also shows a history of the Spanish rail infrastructure and model trains. So, it’s quite comprehensive. There’s a Wagon-Lit restaurant coach and a café coach you can eat and drink.

If you like trains, the Museo is worth a visit. Allow one or two hours (tops). The entrance fee is low. 6 euros from Monday until Friday and only 3 euros on Saturday and Sunday.

If you get a chance, try the Tren de la Fresa or Strawberry Train.
