We arrive on a TALGO from France. and watch the transfer from European standard gauge to RENFE broad gauge at Portbou before travelling on to the regional capital. Barcelona has always been a spectacular city, and since the 1992 Olympic games it has a transport system to match! We use it to get the most out of the city, travelling the metro, the funiculars and the cable ways plus the extensive suburban rail system run by RENFE, and the delightful FGC narrow gauge system run by the regional transport authority. We visit Montserrat and enjoy panoramic views of the Catalonian countryside and the railway! We take day trips north and south -to the fortress town of Girona by TALGO, to Blanes along the RENFE Matador Line and to the Roman city of Tarragona 50 miles south along side the Costa Dorada.-the Gold Coast. For the rail enthusiast there is plenty of RENFE's finest to admire: Container trains, unit steel trains and one of the longest load of cars that we will ever encounter! The Euromed TGV "clones" make a great sight running next to some world class bathing beaches. In Barcelona we visit the sights including Montjuic Castle reached by funicular and cable car. The reward is the view from the ramparts over Barcelona's massive port and container terminals. Narrated RT 80 mins ©FHP 2000
