The collection is displayed in a pavilion from the 1906 Expo with an added reconstruction of a late 19th century railway station façade. It shows one hundred years of rail transport evolution beginning from the second half of the nineteenth century. In the Rail Transport Building you can see some vehicles from the history of public transport in Lombardy: a horse-drawn tram (1885), the mythical Gamba de Legn, "Wooden Leg", (1909) which linked Milan to Trezzo d'Adda and one of the first convoys of the Ferrovie Nord Milano (North Milan Railways). You can also see various steam locomotives produced in Italy between the end of the nineteenth century and the mid-1930s, among which is the 691-022 steam locomotive with tender (1914). A series of electric engines still in use until the end of the 1960s show the technological evolution of rail transport.
