  • It is worth knowing the Railway Museum, which is the old train station of San Rafael, where the locomotive is preserved. Norm and his partner told us very well the history of the station and the history of the city. It is a very pleasant, very interesting and very well told. Lasts approximately half an hour, we remain as 3 hours at the site. The price of the ticket was so cheap that we let you more money, because it is worthwhile to maintain these living places. It is worth to go.

  • Located in the station building .cuenta with a variety of very well preserved elements, together with the explanations of the guides allow much especially know what there is, its history and everything that means losing something as important as the railway.

  • I would have preferred a station of truth, with trains of truth transporting tourists and goods, not a museum. Removing microphones and above all truck routes by lowering the costs of products. They looked at old photos hundreds of workers, who today are paid plans. Too bad we had a disastrous President who said that branch to branch that closes... The Republic stood and applauded the obsecuentes.
