Valletta Station355 viewsPostcard. Written on the back - " This will give you a glimpse of the only railway in Malta which runs only a few miles to the old capital Citta Vecchia. The full fare is only 31/2d. It is quite a Puffing Billy affair. It will tell you what its like when I say that when the train is rather crowded, they sit on the footboards. I've done it myself."Prefect

New Bus Terminus planned.353 viewsBuses will not drive up towards City Gate and park around the Tritons Fountain anymore. Instead, passengers will alight at a stage which will be built close to the gardens opposite the Phoenicia Hotel. Buses will then turn down towards St James Ditch and park briefly in one of the 14 bays where passengers will board.Prefect
