Valladolid by-pass (for freight) and access to the new Valladolid Renfe workshop.

It is being built at the same time as the Valladolid-Venta de Baños-Palencia section of the HSL.
Only the northern half of this will open by now. It runs on the east of the city.

Barcelona-Sagrera station (under construction).

Today I have a bit of an unusual post.
There have been new findings at the Roman villa discovered during the construction works of the new Sagrera station, including another mosaic.

The villa is located right next to the bend of the road on the bottom left, right next to what will be the main building. At least one of the mosaics will be installed in the future station hall:

I was at Almeria station yesterday and work has started on dismantling the old freight sidings and their cantenary, though the wires for the platform facing tracks are still in place. The works information board states it's being done by Sociedad Almería Alta Velocidad SA. Does this mean ADIF still holds out hope for LAV Murcia-Almeria?

Of course it does, but it will be done when we have enough budget to face it. It´s a line that is really needed.
But right now we simply can´t do it yet, next year we have three more HSL sections to open (Granada, Zamora, Leon)!

As for Almeria station itself, aside from the dismantling of those freight sidings, I don´t have a clue how things will be done.

Very interesting news. Can you give some deeper informations:

- Does Leon include the branch to Burgos?
- Isn't Pajares also planned for 2015 (at least one bore)?
- What about Tarragona-Calafat and Valencia-Alacant?
- What about Sevilla-Cadiz?
- What about Vigo-Santiago?

All 5 Projects are also very far advanced, thats why I anm mentioning them.

I don´t think so. The execution of those tunnels is being very complex, to say the least, and a difficult trench is also involved in the problems.

Tarragona-Vandellos should open by next year, I suppose, but better be prudent (it´s been nearly 20 years since they started the works, so I don´t trust any data anymore about this section).

For Valencia-Alicante, see here.

This one has only one section missing, between Marismilla and Utrera, and it could even open by Christmas 2014, if they´re fast enough.

The rest of the Seville-Cadiz upgrade is already in service and finished.

Large chunks of Vigo-Santiago are already in service, but the big change will be the river Ulla viaduct and the upgrade and new access at Vigo-Urzaiz station.
And the electrification, of course...

Accident!!

In Barcelona, in the Zona Franca industrial area, at a barrier-less level crossing.
An FGC freight train on the route Barcelona-Martorell (for the SEAT car factory, on the FGC metric gauge line) hit a TMB bus that was entering its depot.
No one was hurt, luckily. But the bus is totally destroyed, and the loco derailed and suffered minor damage.

As a curio, look at the rails: triple gauge. This is what makes this accident so unusual.

I remember once there was an accident where a renfe emu train hit a midsized bulldozer and didn't derail and now a locomotive hits a flimsy bus and does. Funny.

It didn't look that catastrophic though, at least not for the train.

It wasn´t. I just posted it as a curio more tan anything else, as the train derailed on a triple gauge section, which is not usual at all.

I don´t usually use that font here, unless it is for a non-photo post that may include news or unusual things, and this being a photo-rich thread, is my way to make these posts a bit more visible to people who scroll faster, just that.

I do not think that people are stupid.

I´ve corrected that and reduced the font size, mister moderator (have you replaced Svartmetall or someone else, now? ).

It calls etiquette. People interested in reading, it will. Embellishments are not necessary, and you know it!

Jawohl, oui, claro.

Svartmetall has very rarely told me anything about that (if anything, the use of colours).
Certainly much less often than you, and other moderators don´t tell me either.
I´d rather have Svartmetall himself telling me about it here, in case he should.

Btw: go tell carlesnuc, he does it ten times as much as me and in technicolour, and you tell him off ten times less than to me (but you don´t know him, do you? and you know me).
I suspect that if I paid more attention to your Japan threads you wouldn´t. Or would you?
