The site of the Railway Colony and the seat of the Sports Club, now transformed into a museum, is the scene of the party. Here it is an exposure of the elements used on the railroad, among which are: a balance, a double truck, telephones, telegraphs, parts of the locomotive steam safety valve of the steam locomotive, reduced-size models dating from 1943 built by a railroad worker.

The idea of ​​the event born of the joint work between the members of the commission of the local library, former railroad workers, the municipality and residents of Darwin, who were doomed several months in the preparation for this so special event.

The main objective of the Provincial Railroad Worker Festival is to rescue the local railway identity as a way of promoting its history as the railroad was and is an essential part of the birth and growth of the city and of all locations in the valley.

The first edition of the festival was held in 2010, where in addition to the exhibition were done outdoor shows with regional and national artists presence, and there were booths selling products of local craftsmen.
