Control Panel

Of all the objects found inside the museum the highlight, for its impressive size and technical complexity, is the control panel. Built in 1924 by the Thomson Houston company with a novel electromagnetic technology that dramatically improved train circulation and improved security, it regulated train traffic at the Estació de França up until the Olympic Games, after which it was moved to the museum in Vilanova.
