After more than 50 years in the service it is alive again been raised and equipped with a driving simulator. Visitors can control the Loki by means of original switch and lever virtually through the Albula Valley in the driver's cab. The permanent exhibition shows an interesting range of cultural and social history of the Rhaetian Railway, advance the Landquart railway lines of Albula - Davos ("Magic Mountain"), the UNESCO World Heritage site and Bernina-Bahn from Chur to Pontresina and Tirano. The model iron railway system on a scale of 1:45 afternoon delights young and old.

  • A good overview of design and construction of a railway line by the high mountains more than a hundred years ago. the designer has a fine adjustment by the use of stone viaducts to the landscape. Amazing how advanced design and construction were then!. .

  • A nice museum to visit during a rainy vacation day. The information that is given is dosed properly and you will not be flooded with facts. The model railroad under construction and the cellar with all kinds of spoorweggerelateerde items we found the highlight. Around the museum are free a small number of trains and cabs of cable cars.
