Surrender to the thrill and get carried away by the age in which these marvelous trams circulated through old world city streets.

Mallorca’s first electric tram, running between Soller and the Port of Soller Spain, was inaugurated on 4th October 1913. The project for this line was designed and directed by Pedro Garau, with over two and a half miles of track being laid. One of its outstanding features was the iron bridge over the Torrent Major. To begin with the tramline had its own electrical power plant, alongside the Soller station.

This power plant was driven by a 65 HP explosion engine, which drove a dynamo that provided DC power at 600 volts. The model tram we present is the AAB FHV-2, belonging to the company Ferrocarril de Sóller, S.A. Built in 1929, the mechanics by Carde & Escoriaza and the electrics by Siemens. The tram uses a pantograph to pick up the electrical current, a voltage of 1200 Vcc. It is fitted with 4 Siemens-Schuckert traction motors with an output of 360 kW (90 kW x 4) and is also fitted with both electrical and vacuum braking systems.

Assembling, step by step, this marvelous kit model of the Sóller tram will provide you with lengthy and splendid periods of creative leisure, recreating a faithful replica of the original tram, with all its details.
