Caspe one called in Reus obviously.

The other trains departing Barcelona and different destinations (Irun, Bilbao, Vigo and so on) always via Lerida.

Trains via Lerida could call at Tarragona and Reus or go via Valls

Night trains, one via Caspe. Other ones via Lerida

One SSC forumer was part of the staff and told us several things about the railway and surroundings

Those figures don't include non-Renfe systems, for instance Bilbao and Barcelona have separate companies offering suburban railway services.

And Valencia has integrated some suburban lines into Metrovalencia.

I am wondering why in 2013 there was such slump in passenger patronage?

There are several different commuter-rail networks, but the one that goes by the name of Cercanías is generally Renfe Cercanías (known as Rodalies in Catalonia). There are Renfe Cercanías systems in Madrid, Gijón-Oviedo, Santander, Bilbao, San Sebastian-Gipuzkoa, Zaragoza, Valencia, Alicante-Murcia, Málaga, Cádiz and Seville. Under the brand of Rodalies in Girona, Barcelona, Lleida and Tarragona.

In addition to those there are other region-based commuter-rail services like Feve in A Coruña, Asturias, Santander, Bilbao and Murcia. There are also others like Euskotren in Bizkaia (Bilbao-Lezama, Bilbao-Bermeo, Bilbao-Durango) and Gipuzkoa (Donostia-Hendaye), TRAM in Alicante (Alicante-Benidorm) and probably some others.

And Cordoba has a sort of commuter railway. Quite small... but still medium distance to avoid to create a node there

Here are the latest reports of the OFE (Observatory of the Railway in Spain), which are the most complete (in Spanish, although there are more data than words).
In 2013 there is an index on page 7 and non-Renfe commuters are starting on page 124.

The fall of 2013 I guess it was because of the crisis, for the demand, and reduced services, for the supply.

Question: I heard that Valencia will get a modern train station to replace the current dual use of the old and beautiful Estacion del Norte and the modern and the temporary AVE box at Joaquín Sorolla. Is there a timetable for the construction of this station? I saw online, briefly, that it will be close to the current location of Norte and JS stations, but the information seems limited.

It will be Valencia Norte underground, an Atocha-like upgrade of the old station.

Too expensive for now.

It is opening with one track only for the time being. Electrified and dual-gauge (Iberian and standard). Is that correct?
