Discover Majorca's forgotten railways !


This photo was taken by me in the Summer of 1998 and shows the Goods Area of the old FCM Station in Palma with the goods shed in the centre of the picture and the makeshift bus station to the left. The goods shed is similar to the one which was recently (1998) demolished in the yard of the Soller Station of the Ferrocarril de Soller. Over to the left, beyond the bus station, can be found the disused railway tunnel which once carried goods from the Station at Palma to the dockside area which has now been made into an ornamental lake (see below). The following sequence of pictures shows a number of aspects of that tunnel as seen in 1998 by Barry Emmott and 1999 by John Glover.
