When we said goodbye to the locomotives, we moved to the building right across the main one, where the second part of the exhibition is housed.
This is the part where I wished I had better knowledge of railways. We were completely alone in the vast place, so there was no one to explain to us what all the many levers and buttons were for. I could guess some, but it would've been great if we could've learned more.
The place shows the station master's office, the main part of any railway station, because it ensures that trains operate safely. They use and control the signalling equipment, transmit orders, etc. The museum nicely demonstrated how the procedures and technology changed through time. At one point telegraph was used for communication, then came the telephone and other modern telecommunications followed.
In this part of museum, you get to learn all about that, see the uniforms that were used through time, how the railway lines were built and repaired. But we especially liked the look into the station master's office from the beginning of the 20th century and the remake of an old waiting room.
Asked if they enjoyed the visit my girls gave a unanimous yes. It is a very interesting museum, one we all enjoyed mainly because it was different from anything we had seen thus far. We strongly recommend a visit.
