Tranvias de Barcelona

The first tramway in Barcelona was the Barcelona-Gràcia (Josepets), a horse tramway opened by the Barcelona Tramways on June 28, 1872.  Within a few years, lines were built throughout Barceland and many of the surrounding villages.  As the tramways helped to integrate the metropolis, these villages became quarters of today's Barcelona.  Lines were built by a number of companies, but by the 1900s the two main companies merged to Barcelona Tramways and Compañía General de Tranvías.  Electrification took place in the 1900s with the introduction of route numbers following from 1910 onwards.  In 1925 the two companies merged as Tranvias de Barcelina.  The Spanish Civil War, 1936-9, caused major damage to the tramways.  Services recovered in the 1950s and 1960s, and double-decker trams were used to operate some services.  In 1962, a fleet of 101 PCCs were purchased from Capital Transit, Washington, DC, and were modified.  However closures then started to happen.  With the exception of the Tramvia Blau, the last tramway lines operated on March 18, 1971.
