The Soller Vintage Train has been luring tourists for years. The beautiful wooden carriages first travelled from Palma to Sóller, in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, on 16th April 1912. It was no small feat, as the tracks had to cross the Alfàbia mountain range en route to the booming town, famous for its orange groves.
Eager to check out the famous route, I made my way to Plaça Espanya, Palma’s main transport hub, on a spirng morning to catch the first train of the day at 10:10. Having been informed that the train to Sóller departs from a separate building to the left of the main train station, I didn’t have any trouble finding where to go. However, for those in doubt, the sign ‘Ferrocarril de Sóller’ above the entrance should make it easy enough to spot.
