In the Brañuelas Railway Museum you will learn about the history of the railway and the enormous importance it had for this town in León. Inside, the visitor begins a journey through history. In this process, as if it were an open book, the pieces on display reveal the day-to-day life of the railway profession, which was made up of different trades dependent on each other which gear. Documents, 19th century manuals, unrepeatable photographs, books, signs, communication systems, alarms and a multitude of objects of various kinds that explain the evolutionary changes since the first steam locomotives began to plow through our landscape in 1868.
