I like it, but it's too big for a paper version... furthermore I'd give more importance to the train commuter lines... it seems that the designer is working in a more Cercanias-focused version

Because it got merged with line C5.
Line C6 used to be Embajadores-Móstoles El Soto, but when it was extended to Madrid-Atocha, it was merged with the original line C5 (Madrid Atocha-Fuenlabrada) and the number C5 was retained. Later, the line was extended from Fuenlabrada to Humanes.

So that's why there is no line C6 by now.

==============================================================================================

On the other hand... Valdebebas station, on line C1 (Principe Pio-Aeropuerto T4) will open on December 16.
This comes as a bit of a surprise, we didn't expect it, we thought the next new station to open would be Mirasierra station.
Valdebebas station is located between Fuente de la Mora and Aeropuerto T4 stations, it's an underground station and was built at the same time as the rest of the airport branch, but wasn't opened with the rest of the stations because the quarter wasn't populated enough yet. Now it is, so it opens.
Source: El Mundo (01/Dec/2015, article in Spanish)

No opening date for Mirasierra station yet, even though it was announced it would open by November 2015.

Cercanías Renfe (commuter rail).

Images of the newly opened Valdebebas station.

It is served by line C1 (Príncipe Pío-Aeropuerto T4).

And El Tejar station closed years ago.
Besides, this map will have to be re-done when the next station opens (Mirasierra railway station, connection to Paco de Lucía station of metro line 9), because otherwise there will be no room on the map for it.

Well, thanks for notes. What will we do without your coverage of Spanish railways?

It seems your suggestions have already been added to the map. That was fast!

Robert was too fast. Actually Mirasierra railway station hasn't opened yet!

(and btw its name will not be "Mirasierra-Paco de Lucía", just "Mirasierra", even if it will connect to Paco de Lucía metro station and not Mirasierra metro station... )

Has someone a track map of the Madrid Metro? The system is nearly 100 years old and I can't imagine that there isn't any information about this.

I also tried to find some detailed information about the differences between the series 8000 trains. I figured out that it's separated in series 8000, 8100 and 8400, but I also found trains with 8500 numbering... Which series are constructed by Alstom or CAF?

Right now, city is awaiting opening of Mirasierra Cercanías station, which will provide intechange to Paco de Lucia metro station. No metro extensions are underway due to lack of funds
