In December 2018 the Ministry renewed its confidence in the project of the Foundation and Adif making a new contribution of € 400,000 to finish the intervention started in 2010 of another emblematic ship, that of the Bridge-Crane. This action has allowed the union with the Gran Nave in 2021, thus increasing the exhibition space by more than 1,700 m2. In 2019, the commitment of a contribution of € 600,000 for the future museography of the set was achieved. An intervention planned for the end of 2022 that shows the decisive role of the railway as an engine of innovation and progress in the contemporary world.

The most important project for the future is the coverage of the historic vehicles that are on the outside of the Rotunda to avoid their deterioration and ensure their preservation as well as the general paving of the space as a whole so that all the facilities are fully accessible. In parallel, the renewal of the contents and of the informative and documentary work will continue to create stories around the world of the trains that sensitize the new generations of their value and the contribution that their use makes to the common welfare and sustainability of the planet.
