Overview

This seaside tram operation began in 1997. The meter-gauge line runs approximately 5 km. along the seaside promenade from the Castillo de San Antón to the soccer stadium Estadio Riazor via the Torre de Hercules. There are five cars on the property: 27 (cream), 32 (yellow), 57 (green/yellow), 100 (blue), 101 (blue). Operating cars 27 and 32 are replicas of original La Coruña tramcars; 100 and 101 are former Lisbon cars regauged from 900mm to 1000mm; number 57, on display at the depot, owes its heritage to the Spanish city of Zaragoza. A site about the Coruña tramway, in Spanish, is here but the map, schedule, and price sections are a bit out of date.
