Around Can Rigal stop.

Some trams in double composition (lines T1, T2, or T3), which can occasionally be seen (Christmas, special events, etc):

Experimental section between Francesc MaciÓ and Maria Cristina.

Before the tramway finally "returned" to Barcelona (it actually never left, the Blue Tram never closed, but that┤s a very short and isolated touristic line), a short test single-track line was built in what now is the platform for lines T1, T2 and T3.

Some types of tramways were shown there for the public.

These pics were taken in 1997. You can see a Grenoble tram (old rolling stock) and a Siemens Combino:

The authorities keep on insisting on that, but right now we have no idea about them planning anything serious.

The only thing is that the plan included an extension of tramway T4 from Ciutadella-Vila OlÝmpica towards Estaciˇ de Franša, Drassanes and the WTF (where the ferry terminals are, for the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands and Italy), which has long been announced, but politicians seem to prefer on focussing on the Gl˛ries-Verdaguer-Diagonal-Francesc MaciÓ axis, which is understandable, but much longer, much more expensive, and much more controversial, while the extension from Ciutadella to the WTF would re-use some tracks that were part of the old tram network and are currently being used as bus-only tracks (I even suspect that the old rails could be beneath the pavement in some places).

No date for anything yet: the crisis has forced the authorities to focus on the main issue: to finish the extensions of metro L9/L10.

Is there already a route for this? The curved road between the zoo and the train tracks and then onwards on Passeig de Colom?

Exactly. That┤s the plan. The curved road between the zoo and the train tracks (actually called Passeig de Circumvalaciˇ) has never had rails on it, but from the corner between Estaciˇ de Franša and Passeig Picasso until the Columbus statue there used to be double track in the middle of the Street (MarquŔs de l┤Argentera/Isabel II/Passeig Colom), for the old trams (and I strongly suspect some of them may still exist, under the layers of asphalt), which would need to be rebuilt, but it would be very simple, since a rather long part of the route still exists, but as bus-only tracks.
