THE MALTA RAILWAY

I am trying to catch up with a train that left Malta on 31st March 1931.

This is a group for friends, modellers, collectors enthusiasts and historians of the Malta Railway.

The Malta Railway opened in 1883 and ran from Valletta to Rabat and Mdina. Due to the introduction of the Buses in 1929 the Tramways closed down and in 1931 the Malta Railway had to close down too. However it is still possible to find visible traces of the railway here and there. The line was extended in 1900 through a tunnel under Mdina from Notabile to Museum Station near Mtarfa.
