~ Ferrocarril de Sóller Tramway ~

This is Sóller tram no.4 which was obtained in 1959 from Bilbao Tramways along with another car which was converted to trailer car no.7. It had originally been intended that no.7 should also be a power car but the difficulties encountered in converting the gauge of the geared power trucks from the wider gauge used in Bilbao resulted in the decision to make it an unpowered trailer. This photo was taken in Sóller town, just north of the main square, and the tram is heading for Puerto de Sóller.
