Looking towards Medina del Campo-AV. On the left we can see the HSL to Zamora and Ourense, diverging (and with some electrification poles already in place):





Here works haven´t started yet. On the left, the Medina del Campo-Salamanca classic line, looking towards Medina:





Here the works are already visible. In hindsight, the future junction with the classic line to Salamanca:





The classic line and from the left converges the platform of the future link to the HSL, seen as looking towards Salamanca:

No.

Zaragoza-Tardienta has separated standard and classic gauges (two independent tracks).

It is only Tardienta-Huesca (thus 21 km) where it is mixed.

Nope.

There is dual gauge in Tardienta-Huesca, El Papiol-Rubí-Cerdanyola Universitat-Mollet (junction with HSL), and Girona Mercaderies-Vilamalla-Figueres Vilafant.

That´s all, for now.

Yes, it was a more pleasant colour scheme. The new design a bit too basic for my taste...

The new inside was still empty when the pic was taken.
And the new ceiling is higher, this is why it looks emptier.

You might be right…

Looking at those pictures something else came into my mind. There are actual ticket sales windows in this midsize location. In Switzerland it has to be a sizeable town for it, otherwise it's just ticket machines. How is it in Spain?

Not sure what is the limit, >10,000 inhabitants perhaps? I go for work often to a place which has about 4,000 people living there (4 tracks, ca 3 trains per hour per direction) and there are no ticket windows there anymore.

Lorca has 92.718 inhabitants (according to their website. Sizeable enough?
(OK, it's not the only train station there, but still...)

Lorca is part of the commuter train network of Murcia and Alicante. It means around 20 commuter trains per day.
