Barcelona 1956:
Metre-gauge and Interurban Trams

As well as the city trams, there were several longer routes that had an inter-urban flavour about them.
Some were metre-gauge, though in the city they ran on mixed-gauge track, inter-working with regular trams.

I would like to thank several people for sending me information about many of these pictures. Each person's contribution is flagged with a digit in brackets.
