The Canary Islands

Fuerteventura

A week on Fuerteventura, not noted for it's industry but seems to have a lot of limekilns. I only came across a few so there's lots more to find next time.

Gran Canaria and La Gomera

Mostly ships but I did find a fragment of the electric tramway in Las Palmas and a windmill on La Gomera.

Tenerife

Not much to do in a day on Tenerife except get a day ticket for the trams....




Corsica

Ajaccio Station

Another cruise, another day and the 12:10 pm arrival is still arriving but a little later and now in the hands of the new 'Panoramique' railcars.

June 2007

A cruise and a day on land in Ajaccio, just in time to see the 12:10 pm. arrival from the other end of the island. As it was running a little late, it gave me time to look at their brand-new 'Panoramique' railcar, delivered two days ago.




Mallorca (or Majorca)

The Soller Railway

from Soller town to the outskirts of Palma, as far as we could go in 2016 by coach.

And a couple of very big guns at La Mola Fort, just outside Mahon
