Os Carrileiros


" 956/5000 The Os Carrileiros railway park, is a municipal enclosure managed by the Central Railway of Galicia (Carrileiros & Foula), was inaugurated in May 2003. As time went by, the park incorporated numerous elements and improved with various extensions. In 2011, the Ourense Council promoted a major reform that affected a large part of the existing infrastructure and an expansion of its surface.

The site currently has more than 4,000m² dedicated exclusively to the railway world. The track circuit has a total length of 470m, with a 5 "gauge track. For the passenger service it has two stations, one of them with ticket service and a waiting room, and a halt. The infrastructure has a reinforced concrete viaduct, two tunnels and 4 level crossings.For the service of the trains there is a workshop-depot, water tower, coal bunker and a revolving bridge that serves 5 routes."
