Can you imagine travelling on a real journey on an early-20th-century train from Madrid to Aranjuez? You can actually do this thanks to the legendary Strawberry Train, El Tren de la Fresa. It leaves the Railway Museum, the Museo del Ferrocarril, at 10.00am and returns from Aranjuez at 6.00pm. The price includes the historical value of travelling on such a machine, and it costs 29.90€ for adults and 14.95€ for children.
However, to immerse yourself in the picturesque world of trains you do not necessarily need to board one, since you can discover it at the Railway Museum itself, in the heart of the Arganzuela district. Located in the old Delicias station, which reminisces of the old steelwork stations like Gare Saint-Lazare in Paris, it contains an interesting collection of old locomotives.
