Source text - English
Tucked away in a corner of one of Palma’s busiest thoroughfares lies a railway station, almost hidden from view.
The station belongs to a railway company called Ferrocarill de Soller – literally, the iron road of Soller – and from here, up to one million passengers a year take the train from Palma to Soller, a place often described as Mallorca’s loveliest town, which is situated on the other side of the island.
Almost all of these passengers are tourists – a trip on the railway is one of the most popular excursions on the island.
The railway company was founded in 1905. This was also the year that the predecessor of the modern Mallorcan Tourist Board was founded in recognition of the growing importance of tourism to Mallorca’s economy.
Looking at the much photographed train, with its varnished teak carriages and gleaming brass fittings, you could be forgiven for thinking that the railway was built specifically for the tourist industry.
Tourists and train enthusiasts alike watch with great interest as the locomotive is uncoupled and the train prepared for its return journey to Soller: everything seems to be done the old-fashioned way and a trip on this railway really is a journey back in time.
In fact, the railway was built by the people of Soller as a last ditch attempt to avoid economic decline and possible ruin. Tourism was the last thing on their minds.
Soller is situated on the North West coast of the island of Mallorca.
Translation - Russian
Спрятанный в углу одной из самых оживленных улиц Пальмы, железнодорожный вокзал практически скрыт от взора.
Вокзал принадлежит железнодорожной компании Феррокэрил де Сольер, что буквально означает - железная дорога Сольера. Отсюда, из Пальмы в Сольер - город, находящийся на другой стороне острова и часто называемый самым прекрасным на Мальорке - ездят до миллиона пассажиров в год.
Практически все пассажиры - туристы, ведь поездка по железной дороге считается одной из самых популярных экскурсий на острове.
Железнодорожная компания была основана в 1905 году. В этом же году, в подтверждение возрастающей важности туризма для экономики Мальорки, была основана и организация-предшественница современного Туристического Совета Мальорки.
Глядя на этот часто фотографируемый туристами поезд с вагонами из покрытого лаком тикового дерева и блестящими латунными деталями, можно простить себе мысль о том, что железная дорога была построена специально для туристической индустрии.
Туристы и любители поездов с огромным интересом наблюдают за тем, как отцепляется локомотив и поезд готовится к путешествию обратно в Сольер. Кажется, что все делается как в старые времена. А железнодорожная поездка и впрямь превращается в путешествие в прошлое.
Вообще-то, постройка железной дороги жителями Сольера была отчаянной попыткой избежать экономического кризиса и возможного финансового краха. Туризм интересовал их тогда меньше всего.
Сольер располагается на северо-западном побережье острова Мальорка.
