Mallorca electrification will start in Early 2018

Electrification of the diesel train routes from Enllaç to Manacor and Sa Pobla on Mallorca at 1⋅5 kV DC power level is now expected to start in the beginning of 2018, a year earlier than originally planned. On 5th of May, the regional government of the Balearic Islands announced that this is a high priority and such movement should be done in every bigger city out there.

A budget of €32⋅6m has been set for electrification of the 31 km of single track between Enllaç and Manacor, including the construction of four traction substations and a power feed from the island’s electricity grid. Work to electrify the 12 km of single track between Enllaç and Sa Pobla has been set a budget of €14⋅5m, including two substations.

Take the train on Mallorca
Instead of using extra cash on the busses arranged by the travel operators, then you should explore and see more of Mallorca by using its train network. Palma, the capital of the Baleaeric Islands got a main train station which is also infact shared with the only Metro line on Mallorca. Most of the lines are electrified, but there are small parts that still uses diesel engines and it is these parts that the government what to electrify.

Take the train to Sóller
Services on the tourist railway from Sóller terminate at the adjacent surface level station on Carrer Eusebi Estada. Its not far from the main train-metro station Plaça d’Espanya, but can be a bit tricky to find as its a bit hidden. When you have reached Sóller, you can continue the journey to Port De Sóller. However, a nice tip is that if you are tired on the way home (as the train to Sóller runs very slow because of its age), then you can change to the Metro at Son Sardina station which is shared.
