A historic steam train that still runs between these two stations and has a locomotive, a saloon carriage and four restored wooden carriages, among others. At the station of departure you can visit an exhibition on the evolution of the railway.
Between the Martorell Enllaç and Monistrol de Montserrat stations, there is still an historic steam train offering a very special trip. Before you board the train at the Martorell-Enllaç station, you can visit the exhibition called FGC, one hundred and fifty years of history. The exhibition explains the development of the railway in Spain. There are also two audiovisual displays: The history of the railway and The history of the steam train, aimed at children.
Hostesses will help passengers throughout the journey, issuing the tickets needed to board the train as well as a supporting certificate to all the children on board.
The train has a locomotive, a lounge carriage and four wooden carriages that have been restored. There is also a children’s play area on the train. During the journey, there is a dramatic production with stories and characters from the period relating to the steam train, which is performed by a group of entertainers.
When the train arrives in Monistrol de Montserrat, all the passengers can see how the train is turned around and watered, which is when water is loaded before making the return journey.
The train stops for around 25 minutes at Monistrol station. Visitors therefore have time to take a stroll around the village, which is close to the Muntanya de Montserrat Natural Park, to see the Bo-bo square with arcades or to visit Prioral Palace to see the excellent cloister built in the Catalan civil Gothic style.
