Sarria is actually a district just outside the centre of Barcelona, and suburban trains run through there. Electric suburban train on the Sarria Railway at Sarria.

Barcelona: RENFE steam loco at Gracia station (where you board the train to Sitges). Sitges is on the coast, near Barcelona. It is on a main-line railway, engineered by Francisco Guma. I was there during the last week of steam operation: the line had just been electrified.
