Description

Take advantage of your visit to Catalonia to try out an original activity in Mora la Nova: train driving!

At Mora la Nova, you'll see one of the largest railway installations in Catalonia. This town played a major role at the end of the 19th century as it provided a connection between Barcelona and Madrid.

Today, the museum guards the heritage of centuries of railway-related artefacts (optional; ticket not included, payable on site). These artefacts attest to a rich cultural heritage and also provide inspiration for projects based around today's station.

There's a unique and original activity on offer at this establishment. Your guide will introduce you to train driving and explain all the features of the cab.
After your training session, it'll be time to put your new knowledge into practice; hop aboard a YEYE or MEME train (different fuel). 

Book your locomotive ride, for memories that young and old alike will treasure!
