Los Rosales-Zafra-Mérida line.
Usagre-Bienvenida station.


The station was closed long time ago.
Note the bad state of the track. Pity, since the line would allow for very good speeds if they finished the upgrade.

A freight train:

When I did that, I went 1st class. 80 Euros for 11 hours of pleasure, I did not
take it as expensive. And in that car, I'm sure that every seat had a window
(that's a conventional train, with cars hauled by an electric locomotive).
In 2nd class cars, I'm not sure. But you are generally less likely to encounter
blind seats in conventional cars than in high-speed rakes.

There isn´t (excepting a part of the section Torrellano-San Gabriel on the Murcia-Alicante line, but that´s a short sector).

Why do you say this?

Apparently some builders (CAF, Stadler, maybe Bombardier) think before installing seats so that most if not all their trains have seats next to the windows, other don't (Talgo, Siemens, Alstom), and match seats and windows only if asked to do so (the ETR 600 is basically the same train as the ETR 610, but the former has blind seats, the latter doesn't).

Most conventional cars were built in an era where there was more attention in building trains.

Lleida-La Pobla de Segur line.
Between Àger and Cellers-Llimiana stations.

This Iberian gauge line currently belongs to FGC, although for many years it used to belong to Renfe/Adif.
It is currently exploited with Renfe rolling stock, such as the class 592 DMU of the pic, but it looks like in the future FGC will buy some DMUs to Stadler.

Nice detail. You can see boxes which isolate the welding process from external influences.

News:

The ministry is writing the project of the third rail between Astigarraga (end of the Basque "Y" HSL), and Irun (end of the standard gauge from France).
