Public Transport - Train Routes and Timetables
There are two railway lines in Majorca, and both have terminals in Palma's Placa d'Espanya. The first is a 27km long narrow gauge track, that runs north through the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains to the town of Soller. This route, along with a short boat trip around the harbour at Soller, is the central part of many of the tour operators "Scenic West" or "Western Highlights" type day trips.
The track terminates at a converted 17th Century manor house in the old town of Soller,
from where a tram then makes the short trip down to the coast. Both tourists and
locals alike have been making this journey now for the past 90 years in the vintage brass
and mahogany carriages that are a trademark of this train, whilst admiring the breathtaking scenery enroute.

The other route is a little more commercial, and a little less scenic, and is operated by the Transport de les Illes Balears or the T.I.B. This route heads north across the plains to the town of Inca, passing through the villages of Marratxí, Santa Maria del Camí, Consell, Binissalem and Lloseta on the way. Once at Inca, you can then either catch a bus to the Lluc monastery, or continue on the train to either Sa Pobla or Manacor.
For a number of years now, it has been talked about extending this line onto a new terminus somewhere
along the north coast of the island, but sadly as yet, these proposals have not been approved by the
municipal council for this extension of the service.
