Good outing for children!

OK, so both the grandchildren I brought here were boys, but they loved it!
Savigliano was home to a major locomotive construction and maintenance works (think Swindon, Derby, York) and Alsthom still has a depot here. The collection has items from the late 19th century to a 1990s prototype tilting train Pendolino. And you can get on board some of the stock, even fiddle with the controls without fear of accident or reprimand from the staff. Who were very friendly. I don't know how good their English is, but they were able to take son-in-law and grandsons for a ride on the pedal-powered track maintenance vehicle, and operated the very extensive model railway for them.
Avoid disapppointment - go at the weekend. The website says they also open on Thursday in the summer, but I haven't verified this.
