An authentic railway cottage in Train World. That's unique! It tells the tale of railway men and women who have been active throughout history and, still today, work non-stop, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.
Outside you'll find huge portraits of these railway folk and the story of the Telemans family. They lived in this very cottage, built for the track foreman. The cottage takes you back to the time of Expo ’58, an era that symbolised progress.
However, the railways also suffered some dark times. Over 3,000 railway men lost their living during the two world wars. Not forgetting the 28 convoys with Jews and gypsies, who were transported to concentration camps. That's a page in our history books that should never be forgotten.
Today we're open from 10:00 until 17:00 (last admission at 15:30). Exceptionally closed from 14/10/19 to 21/10/19 and on 17/03/20.
