What other metro stations are named after musicians?

In Paris, metro station Carrefour Pleyel (line 13) is named after the Austrian composer Ignaz Pleyel (1757-1831) who founded a musical publishing house in Paris.

Milan has a Wagner metro station (line 1), named after piazza Wagner, presumably itself named after a German composer.

In Santo Domingo, the eastern terminus of line 2 is Eduardo Brito station. Eduardo Brito (1906-1946) was a Dominican baritone singer.

In Brussels, Jacques Brel station (line 5) is named after Belgian singer, songwriter, and poet Jacques Brel (1929-1978).

Madrid has two other Metro stations named after musicians:

-Chueca in Line 5, under the plaza de Chueca, after the Spanish composer of zarzuelas Federico Chueca.

-Manuel de Falla in line 10, after the Spanish composer with the same name.

Since 2010, but orange trains are only in Barcelona due to the creation of Rodalies de Catalunya (Commuter rail services operated by Catalan Government and Renfe).

Traditionally, in Spain red have been for commuter trains (Cercanías in Spanish, Rodalies in Catalan, Aldiriak in Basque) and orange for regional trains. However, currently commuter and regional services are much more integrated in Catalonia and they used R code for the numbering of all the lines of the region. As Kane_84 have said, it started with the new management partnership for short and medium distance trains in Catalonia between Renfe and the Catalan Government. In the rest of Spain color distinction is kept.

That's why I asked. The video is shot in Madrid's Atocha station, and half the trains are painted orange instead of red (see example in second 35)

That is definitely a light issue, due to lack of regional trains (which are actually painted orange) in the video.

Proximidades in Galician, but currently it's not in use due to lack of commuter rail in Galicia. I actually prefer Rodalies over Cercanías .

Hahahaha.

Ok, Proximidades in Galicia. Renfe-Prox would be cooler.

In second 35 the train is painted in red. It is a regular Cercanias train, a Civia.

The only Regional train in the video is the last one. Atocha-Cercanias is used as station by passing-through crossing Madrid in the Atocha complex, as it is the southern end of the Atocha-Chamartín tunnels. Actually, the station is used by many trains which cross Madrid, or which are heading South from Chamartín, but which are not Cercanías.

The video was not recorded in the morning rush hour or any other peak hour.

Update on Soto del Henares station on Cercanias C-2 & C-7 services:

La estación de Soto del Henares se encuentra en Torrejón de Ardoz, en la linea Madrid-Zaragoza de ferrocarril convencional. Por dichas vías pasan las líneas C2 (Chamartín-Guadalajara) y la C7 (Alcalá de Henares-Chamartín-Príncipe Pío-Fuente de la Mora). La estación se encuentra en construcción desde aproximadamente octubre de 2014.




Soto del Henares se encuentra situada a 4,5km de la estación de la Garena y a 3,3km de la estación de Torrejón de Ardoz.

Si alguien no tiene muy claro el plano de cercanías de Madrid puede consultar este plano esquemático o bien Google Maps.

Finalmente, a lo que iba, el vídeo. Están hechos desde un tren, y podrían estar mil veces mejor, pero es lo mejor que he podido hacer con el movil. Dicho sea de paso que, en el segundo vídeo, un 450 a unos 130 km/h no es que favorezca demasiado la estabilidad del vídeo.



¡Espero que os guste!
