Zaragoza-Caspe-Reus-Tarragona line.

River Ebro is having quite a flood.
The line has been cut between Fuentes de Ebro and Quinto stations.

On the image, a class 470 EMU trying its best to stay afloat...

Crevillente-Murcia line (upgrade).

Images taken around Orihuela, shortly before the new Orihuela station opened.

For now, not electrified, Iberian gauge, single track.

Medina del Campo-Salamanca line (under electrification) & connection to the HSL.

It's very advanced in places.

The least advanced section is near Medina del Campo, though.

Images taken between Salamanca and Moriscos stations:

I don't know.

I think first would be Santiago-Vigo including the Ulla viaduct.
Then Salamanca-Medina del Campo.
Then Valladolid-Palencia (maybe also Palencia-Leon?).
Then Olmedo junction-Zamora.
Then Antequera-Santa Ana-Granada.
Then Vandellos-Vilaseca.
Then Monforte del Cid junction-Murcia.
Then Vilaseca-Camp de Tarragona.

But there are no exact dates yet.

If openings follow this order, the correct sections must be:

1) Olmedo junction - Medina del Campo (new section) - Salamanca (electrification of the current line)

2) Medina del Campo - Zamora

Electrification between Medina del Campo - Salamanca cannot be put into service without opening the HSL section between Olmedo junction and Medina del Campo.

Or so we think for now. Someone says otherwise, and that someone can be extremely reliable at times.

Btw, to clarify, arctic_carlos means Medina del Campo-AV station on the HSL, not Medina del Campo station on the classic line.

On a more off-topic vein, this is my post number 22,222. I feel like Mr.Bean.

I checked that there are currently few trains per day going from Valladolid to Salamanca via Medina del Campo. Will this connection also be shortly possible with electric trains or is there a gap somewhere?

Theoretically, the first phase involved electrication of Medina del Campo-AV to Salamanca, leaving the short section between the junction to the HSL and Medina del Campo classic line station unelectrified.

In a second phase, that gap, as well as Salamanca-Vilar Formoso would be electrified too.

But that's all we know, maybe there's been some change in the plan... or maybe not.

There is nothing new.
Valladolid to Salamanca with electric drive alone with dual voltage equipment and variable gauge (121 series) and reversing in Olmedo HS.
I do not believe commercial service under these conditions, at least from Valladolid. Maybe from Barcelona.
.................................................................
No hay nada nuevo.
De Valladolid a Salamanca con tracción eléctrica solo con material bitensión y ancho variable (S-121) y con inversión de marcha en Olmedo HS. No creo que exista servicio comercial en esas condiciones, al menos desde Valladolid, quizás sí desde Barcelona.

Will Spain, in the long term, convert all network to 25kV 50HzAC? Or does it intend to keep also the 3kV DC system as well?

Passenger trains, not in the slightest.
Besides, nearly all of them will call at Orihuela station, so no real speed issue.

The question here is: will freight trains run on this line?

How long is "long term" for you?

Zaragoza-Goya station.

A class 470 EMU, probably bound for Barcelona.



Where is the train? On the picture, of course.



No kryptonite. No questions asked.
