The Estación de Delicias was once an important railway station of Madrid, Spain. It was closed in 1969 and has now a second life as a railway museum (Museo del Ferrocarril). The wonderful building from 1879 is now filled with different locomotives, steam engines and railway cars. Most interesting item is the Talgo II train used between 1950 and 1972 – you can even enter it and look inside.
Additionally there is a small exhibition about railway infrastructure, a coffee bar in and next to a bistro railway car and a small shop. The museum is no shiny commercial place; it feels like it is run by railway enthusiasts. By the way: the former railway station has been used to film several movies – including the famous Doctor Zhivago from 1965.
