People reading books, like me. Also e-books...

NEWS!

According to some people working for the metro operating company (TMB), L10 sud will open either in December 2017 or in January 2018 with 3 new stations.

Those stations are supposed to be Foneria and Foc (for sure), but there's some uncertainty regarding the third one. Hopefully it will be Ildefons Cerdà, a transfer station with L8. The other option would be to open one of the stations on the viaduct, but that seems less likely.

where are those new stations going to go? The article does not have a map, although it looks like there's one right behind the mayor giving the press conference in the photo

NO, Rodalies single ticket is only for Renfe Rodalies trains, not for metro, not for tramway, not for buses, etc...
BUT...
It is better and cheaper to buy a T10 travelcard, which serves for ALL public means of transportation, with 3 free transfers in every trip!

This could become an interesting route to get from Gràcia to the aeroport (with a connection in Europa-Fira).

And it will probably even be finished before L9 passes by Lesseps...

More than 1 hour by metro.

You can do it now with Rodalies train from Passeig de Gràcia station to Airport Terminal 2 in 24 min., with T10 travelcard.

And with the new train, in 2018, you will be able to do it from Passeig de Gràcia to Airport Terminal 1 in 20 min. But the price for this option will be 6€.

Wouldn't it be more simple (and cheaper) to build a single tunnel to join both FGC networks from Catalunya to Espana and form a continuous loop?

Not possible: different gauges 1000mm - 1435mm, different voltages, different trains (5 cars-3 cars), etc.

And, besides what Bitxofo said, there's another problem: you'll have to pay twice, given that single tickets sold in FGC aren't valid for travelling in the L9sud airport stations, and the special airport ticket is only valid in the TMB network. And, what's worse, T-10 is not valid for the L9sud airport stations.

Irrelevant when the gauge is different.

However, I think that nowadays they have the same loading gauge, so if bogies were changed, they could run on each other's tracks, but not by themselves.

FGC Vallès has 4-car trains (excepting trains for L7 which are 3-car trains. And L12 too? Not sure).

FGC Llobregat has longer platforms, usually trains run as 3-car, but it's not strange to see 6-car trains (3-car+3-car couplings) on certain services.

Another main difference is platform height.

FGC Vallès (L6, L7, L12, S1, S2, S5, S55) is step-free, same platform height as the metro.

FGC Llobregat (L8, S33, S4, S8, R5, R6) is NOT step-free, and only one car of each train is adapted for handicapped people.

And another main difference is the signalling.

UPDATE | Upgrade of Paral.lel station (L2/L3)

Paral.lel station is being upgraded. They've started with the L2 platforms.
As you can see on the video below (filmed in 2009), the station needed the upgrade, as it has a problem with water infiltrations.

UPDATE | Sant Antoni station (L2)

Sant Antoni station, as well as the Paral.lel L2 platforms, is the only other station in which trains share the same tunnel, where trains run on the left.

And it is the only station with an island platform where trains run on the left.

The other stations on the stretch of L2 between Paral.lel and Monumental have trains running on the left, however they don't share the same tunnel or platform.

Between Monumental and Badalona Pompeu Fabra, trains run on the right.

UPDATE | USB points on L2

USB charging points have been installed in at least two class 9000 trains running on L2.

You can plug your mobile phone there.

Good night! Due to MWC 2017 at Fira Gran Via, L9 South has partial services in some rush hours. With this partial trains and the all-stop trains, the line have a very good frequency (3 min) between Collblanc/Torrassa stations and Fira station

This year, TMB (the public operator of Metro in Barcelona) is doing a very good job with Metro and Bus systems. The last year was disastrous due to the heavy strike of TMB employers...
