At the north end of the FGC line U7, at Avinguda (Avenue) Tibidabo, is the southern terminal of a 'heritage' trolley line known as Tramvia Blau, the 'Blue Tram', the only tramway in Barcelona at this time. (However, Barcelona has many wide avenues that would do quite well with modern LRV light rail and in fact a test track was constructed along Avinguda Diagonal a few years ago for this purpose.) At the terminal there is a single track curbside on the northbound lane of a street. Just north of the terminal it becomes two tracks and runs in the middle (traffic) lane of the road. After crossing a bridge over a motorway, the Tramvia Blau heads up the side of the Tibidabo mountain, still street running, up a steep twisty road. Just before heading up the mountain, a small car barn is down a spur track on a side street.

Address: Collserola Mountain, 08035 Barcelona, Spain
Directions: Grey Metro Line, then Blue extension to Funicular del Tibidabo.
