Docuferr timetable

The Docuferr blog has just completed its latest Renfe timetable guide, which includes all AVE, long and medium distance services.

https://docuferrblog.wordpress.com/g...ferrocarriles/

Although it is not the official timetable it is used to check the services in each route with the format of the guides always.

After almost 6 years without passenger trains in this international connection, since yesterday Badajoz (Spain) is again connected to Elvas and the rest of the Portuguese rail network.

A daily service operated by CP now connects the Portuguese town of Entroncamento (a key rail junction in the center of the country) with the Spanish city of Badajoz, next to the border, and then back to Entroncamento.

Travel times aren't really competitive (it takes 3 hours for 170 km), and the new connection won't be really useful to go from Badajoz to Lisbon, but at least it will be an important shortcut for people traveling to the north of Portugal from southern Spain.

First Portuguese train in Badajoz station since January 2012:

Train joins with a direct train Badajoz-Puertollano where you can take a HSL to Madrid
In Merida you can stop for less than 10 minutes and take a regional train Merida-Caceres-Madrid. Therefore, you can reach Madrid with two ways and similar time.

The Spanish government has tendered the informative study of the new Valencia urban tunnel, linking the future central station (located a few hundred meters south of current Valencia Nord station) with the north of the city. It will be used by both high speed and commuter trains, and it will have two new underground stations for commuter rail services.

The informative study for the construction of the Valencia - Castellón HSL has also been tendered. This is the old project, ruled out in 2010, but I guess there won't be many changes:

In front of Granada's station there is an old track left in the pavement.

https://www.google.ch/maps/@37.18450...7i13312!8i6656

I suppose it is a remenant of the frist tramway system closed in 1971.

Track laying is almost completed on the Camarillas bypass line. It's a 18 km long new alignment of the Albacete - Murcia classic line, avoiding the old line next to the Camarillas reservoir (34 km long).

It's mostly prepared for double track (with the exception of a 2 km long tunnel) but for the moment only a single track has been installed.

En esa zona la vía está preparada para la instalación de un PAET, aunque de momento no parece que vaya a haberlo. Si se tendió una vía para ser usada como cargadero









otro vistazo dirección Murcia antes de abandonar el sitio



Y no hay nada más que contar del jueves.

AV City services are a low-cost version of AVE. They don't have first class and use the trains usually assigned to Avant services (S-104 and S-121), which means they have a maximum speed of 250 km/h.

Nobody really knows.

At this point, trying to make this kind of predictions in Spain has become quite bold. If we believe what politicians say, at least the following new HS lines should open in 2018:

- (Valladolid) - Venta de Baños - Burgos: quite likely
- Zamora - Pedralba de la Pradería: probably
- Antequera - Granada: quite likely
- Monforte del Cid - Murcia: unknown (local residents oppose AVE trains on the surface and demand the construction of the planned underground station; meanwhile there have bee riots against the construction of a temporary track on the surface and the railway connection between Murcia and Alicante / Cartagena is suspended since last week)
- Madrid Chamartín - Madrid Puerta de Atocha (without stopping there) - Torrejón de Velasco: quite likely
- Vandellòs - Camp de Tarragona: very likely
- Valencia - Castellón (mixed gauge on the classic line to allow AVE services): very likely (tests are already underway)

I spent several hours in Zaragoza and made some pictures as well. You find them here.
The station itself seemed to be unnecessary large to me, but I only visited it twice and even these visits were on the same day. But that large emtpy space makes the station unfriendly anyway.
(I should post some in the Zaragoza thread as well. However it has not been updated for more than half a year.)

I agree with you about large and unnecessary.... and almost all forumers agree too, and in addition, we wonder why they didn't make a double tunnel with a smaller station.

It was payed with an urbanistic operation where railway administration got lands to sell for buildings providing they will spend all the money in railway issues in the city.

Obviously, it could be done better



Which was the thread you posted on?

When will be the opening of that bypass line?

The signalling contract (project + works) was only awarded two days ago, and it has a 12-month deadline. So being optimistic the bypass line could open in December 2018.

Santiago de Compostela railway station is going to be refurbished. The result will look pretty good, in my opinion:
