last train to sóller ...

'In 1912, a train line was opened between Palma and Sóller, making the northwestern coast of Mallorca accessible to the city. Prior to 1912, the journey across the mountains of Mallorca made passage difficult, and the Palma-Sóller road was a terror to navigate. The train ride today is much like in was almost 100 years ago. Vintage railcars with mahogany panels and brass fittings rattle along the track through numerous tunnels.'

 

It was a bit cloudy this afternoon ... but has started to clear now!
