Near Monreal del Campo station (between Zaragoza and Teruel).

A class 599 DMU doing... something REALLY VERY ODD.

Not yet, at the very least.
Please don't bring politics into this section of the forum, there already is the Skybar for such purposes.

I watched, but didn't quite understand what exactly happened... Was it a hole dug under the rails with it collapsing when the train crossed? If so why???

It can' t be seen very clearly, but that's an embankment that the flood took away, there was no ballast, and yet the train crossed.

To me, that's absolutely intolerable. You can't risk the safety of the passengers like that. It could have overturned.

The worst is that after the train crossed, the line was closed for repair.

I understand now... I agree that should not have been allowed. Some risk of derailing plus rails are probably damaged even more after such a crossing.

To me, that was an absolutely foolish thing to do.

First thing, the driver should have got off the train and inspect the tracks himself, then probably get back to the former station and ask for a subtitution bus, or stay put with the passengers inside and 100% safe.

You can't risk the safety of the passengers like that.

I've discovered a second and better video about the Monreal del Campo incident.

Might a compromise solution be for the other thread to be renamed SPAIN | RENFE and for this to be renamed SPAIN | Euskotren?

No, but it could be moved to the "Subways & urban transport" subforum, where there is a Bilbao thread.
That's where it belongs. Euskotren operates only suburban rail lines (plus the Bilbao and Vitoria tramways and a funicular in Trapagaran, a Bilbao suburb).

It is an area that usually get damned when heavy storms come.

Former national road had (and have) the same problem.

Fortunately, paralel motorway A-23 was designed several metres over water level when storms and it is not cut... but I have been driving there with heavy storm and I remember driving on 40 on the motorway

Looks like the stations of the countryside from Brazil

Pai Nosso,

The Betanzos station (from RENFE) reminds very much the train stations of the countryside from the So Paulo state, here in Brazil.
