The Mandas Station located in Largo Lawrence is one of the largest on the line. Here, in January 1921, stayed the English writer David Herbert Lawrence together with his wife Frieda during his trip to Sardinia.
In the historical center you can see the Museum of Sacred Art, the Parish Church of San Giacomo and the House-museum of the ancestors.
Leaving from Mandas, one reaches a branch and proceeds towards east, leaving on the left the local public transport line for Isili.
Among the houses of the inhabited area, the Orroli station is a starting point for excursions to discover the territory that hosts the Nuraghe Arrubiu, one of the largest and most suggestive in Sardinia, an authentic and identifying place of Sardinia in the past.
The station is just outside the village, one of the main towns of the territory in which there is also the imposing lake Flumendosa, set among the green mountains of central Sardinia. The lake is navigable with a boat, for an experience out of time, inside a wonderful natural scenery.
The train then plunges into the Garullo valley and reaches the pretty station of Villanova Tulo, a few kilometers from the town.
In the territory of the village there is the important archaeological area of the Nuraghe Adoni.
In correspondence of the tollgate 68 there is the stop that allows to reach the boat for the excursions on the Lake of the Flumendosa.
Crossed the bridge, begins a panoramic stretch on the underlying lake of the Flumendosa while, a little beyond, there is the house cantoniera of Palarana set between two galleries.
Isolated from the world because it can be reached only by railroad or on foot after hours of walking, Palarana was once the residence of punishment for the most undisciplined cantonieri.
Immersed in a unique scenery, this house arouses much curiosity among travelers of the Trenino Verde because it appears solitary, on the mountain slope, in front of the lake.
