DESCRIPTION
A heritage tramway line operated in A Coruna from 1997 to 2011; service was suspended in 2011 due to economic reasons. Tram ran only in the summer (during week-end), while in the rest of the year it worked only during the holidays. The track was parallel to the coast, linking Castillo de San Anton to Estadio Riazor (stadium), passing through Torre de Hercules. The operating rolling stock was constituted by 5 trams: n. 27 (cream color), n. 32 (yellow color), n. 57 (green/yellow color), n. 100 and n. 1001 (both blue color). N. 27 and n. 32 were copies of the original vehicles, n. 100 and n. 101 are old Lisbon trams converted from 900 mm to metric gauge, while n. 57 standed at the depot.
