Railway Museum in Mora la NovaThe old steam locomotive depot, one of Spain's most important that once had 100 locomotives
The Interpretation Centre Railway of Mora la Nova
Located in the old railway facilities in Móra la Nova where there was a largest depot of steam locomotives in Spain with 100 locomotives and 1,000 employees.
The Interpretation Centre is part of an ambitious restoration project of industrial archaeology that includes the launch of a tourist steam train from the Mediterranean sea shore inland towards the Ebro River valley, as a well as the creation of professional school to learn railway related skills. As of now the visitor may enjoy a guided tour of the signal box, housing one of the first electromechanic control systems in Europe; the 23 meters turntable and the old rolling stock depots, used today as restoration shops. The tour ends with a visit to the new enclosed shed for the tourist train , where several locomotives, self-propelled units, coaches and freight cars , are being restored and preserved, all of them showing the railroad evolution through the years. Amongst them , we find the 241F-2238 , the only remaining unit of the most powerful steam locomotives from the Mora la Nova old depot, which headed the express trains between Barcelona and Madrid during the fifties and sixties
