The history of Mallorca's railways was told in Giles Barnabe's book 'The Railways and Tramways of Majorca', published in 1993 and now out of print. Now, drawing on numerous sources the author brings the story up to date. The much revised and expanded text provides historical information on all the island's railways, descriptions of their routes and for the lines still open - summarises developments over the last 10 years. There are chapters devoted to the motive power and rolling stock, methods of train working, timetables and there is a full description of each line. A fascinating new Appendix gives 'eye witness' accounts of travel on the FC Mallorca in 1875, 1929 and 1957. Finaly there are notes on industrial railways on Ibiza and Formentera. The book is illustrated with numerous photgraphs, maps, track diagrams of major stations, scale drawings of locomotives and rolling stock.
