Barcelona Tramways 1999, part 1


a collection of photographs over Tranvia Blau, the remaining tramway system in Barcelona, Spain from August 1999. Traffic during the summer and weekends with historical trams. From Av del Tibidabo (where the FGC-train has a terminal station) to the hills at Plaza de Funicular, where the funicular takes you up to the hill/mountain of Tibidabo. The tramway are more or less climbing uphill all the way, approx 2-3 kilometers long.

On one of the avenues in Barcelona, Avinguda Diagonal, there is a single track built, approx 800 meters long. As told to me, this was used a few years ago, for testing new trams, named "Tramvia de la Diagonal".
