Lines L6, L7, S1, S2, S5, S55.
GrÓcia station.


Not to be mistaken by Passeig de GrÓcia railway and metro station, this an entirely different station, located in a different quarter.

It┤s been recently refurbished too, though, with a larger new northbound platform:

New Barcelona suburban trains enter service

Catalan Government Railways (FGC) celebrated the introduction of its new fleet of class 113 1.5kV DC suburban EMUs on January 27, when the first train was named Barcelona in a ceremony at the city's Plaša Catalunya station.

Line R2.
Aeroport station.


Located outside the terminal T2, it is the terminus for R2 services for Sant Celoni, and also some services for Granollers-Centre and Mašanet-Massanes.

Images of the access from the airport T2 terminal to the station, which is done through a pedestrian overpass:

On this pic we already see the railway station, and next to it on the left, the entrance to the future metro L9 Aeroport T2 station:

It has two bay platforms, one of them is shorter and rarely used.
This is one of the reasons why the R2 trains bound for Granollers-Centre, Sant Celoni and Mašanet-Massanes aren┤t 10-car.

Images of the ticket hall and platforms:

Line R2.
El Prat de Llobregat station.


The station was put underground as part of the works related to the arrival of the Madrid-Barcelona HSL.

Here┤s where the trains for the airport have their last stop before taking the airport branch line.

In the future this station will become an important connection between Rodalies Renfe line R2 and metro L9.

Images of the building and ticket hall:

Barcelona-Passeig de GrÓcia station.


One of the most central railway stations in Barcelona, with one of the entrances being right in front of the door of one of Gaudi┤s most famous buildings.

It has a connection with metro lines L2, L3, and L4.

Regional trains also call here.

Needless to say, this station is one of the busiest in Barcelona.

Images of the platforms, and the recently reopened corridors and halls after the last upgrade, which has kept the main ticket hall closed for two years.
The parts that have been upgraded now have escalators and lifts:

Lines L8, S33, S4, S8, R5, R6.
Gornal station.


This underground station is located very close to the Bellvitge Rodalies Renfe station (see post just below), so a short walk allows an easy connection for line R2.

Do not use this station late at night, though, Gornal is not the safest quarter.

Bellvitge station.


Not to be mistaken for the Bellvitge L1 metro station, located on the other side of the Bellvitge quarter (but not very, very far).

This surface station is located righ at the limit of the Bellvitge and Gornal quarters, very close to the Gornal FGC station (see post just above), so it allows an easy connection to lines L8, S33, S4, S8, R5 and R6.
At night, the Gornal quarter can be a bit creepy, though. Bellvitge is a better and safer quarter, most of the times.

There are plans to build a new Airport Rodalies line with two underground stations, one at each terminal (T2 and T1) but construction hasn't started yet. In 2016 we'll have Metro L9 serving both terminals.

Huge letdown this uppgrading. It didn't adress any of the huge issues this station has beyond installing lifts and escalators.

Things that they should have fixed:

1. Ridiculously narrow platforms that are always overcrowded, I have seen more than a few close calls where people are almost pushed off the platfrom. Aragˇ street is 50 meters wide, there is no excuse why they have not widened the platforms during the construction works.

2. Temperatures reach 45-50 degrees inside the station during summers, I have seen people faint due to heat exhaustion several times.

3. Second vestibule is a joke, is is used by millions of people every year and it still looks like a sewer.

4. Due to non existant cooperation between ADIF and the city hall, the metro station is still a dump when it should have been renovated at the same time.

5. The primary vestibule is still useless since they forgot to install a waiting hall which should have AC so you can survive more than 30 seconds during summers, what is the fraking point of expanding the vestibule if you don't install a waiting hall??????

So according to you, the other issues were more important than higher platforms, lifts, escalators, and eliminating barriers for the handicapped?

Yes, there is one excuse, a BIG one: budget. Give me the money and I┤ll make a golden tunnel for six tracks and Arctic temperatures.
If Paris doesn┤t expand Saint Michel-N˘tre Dame, why should we do it?

Drink Aquarius. Use a deodorant and/or have one at hand. This can be of use.

That one doesn┤t connect with the metro. Never thought of it as part of the sewage, come to think of it.

Why should they? Different stations, different owners, different budgets. Not any dump in sight.

That is not what I said, I advise you to read the sentence again, slowly.

Now you are just being silly, Saint Michel-N˘tre Dame has dedicated platforms for each line and handles half the number of yearly passengers

Because it is a SYSTEM, trains and underground don't exist in separate universes even though ADIF and Barcelona City hall like to pretend they do.
