I have a big problem - I adore trains.. OK so that's out of the way! The truly impressive thing is the scale the broad gauge allows, particularly in stream locomotive development... the final flowering of Spanish steam locomotives is truly awesome in scale and will impress any one from 8 to 80 - particularly those who are used to European steam engines.
Then there is the technical development of the Talgo trains and the bogie adjusting equipment.
In my review of Pietresara I mentioned the different European schools of train building... Spanish industry has a special place..
But it's not for just for enthusiasts... my wife particularly enjoyed the explanations by the locomotives. She says she learnt more than anywhere else! Then there is the passion of the girls on reception and the shop. Their knowledge is fantastic, and so freely given. Buy the guide before you tour the site - at e6 it's great value. Finally entrance is far too cheap, and they are obviously short of money.. so please give generously to their collection box.
