30 - The Small Station of Vilanova

Hi, my name is Victor and this is my friend, Carlota, and we would like to welcome you to the Catalonia Railway Museum, the House of Trains. It’s a thrilling place! Carlota and I spend many weekends here, finding out lots of things about the history of trains and their home. Today we’d like to share them with you. Would you like that?

I’d like to start by telling you about where we are. We are in the “Small Station of Vilanova i la Geltrú”, at the beginning of a magical trip back in time. Ah! Vilanova is one of the cities in Catalonia with the highest number of people that travel by train. You must come and visit, there is a fantastic beach, other great museums and loads of things to do.

Victor, we’re going to be late! Let’s go, we’ll tell you everything on the way! Friends, are you ready to take a trip back in time and discover what the first trains in history were like? Well you can start looking outside and give Teresita a little wave. No, you aren’t looking for a girl. Teresita is a locomotive, the front part of a train that makes it possible for the passenger cars or the wagons carrying goods to move.

If you like you can visit all the stops in the museum as if you were a little train. That will make it lots more fun…
