It is better to ignore that kind of comments (jealousy is a bad thing)

By the way, just one week left to the beginning of the AVE Madrid-Valencia, it is gonna be a wonderful day for Spain

No son muy buenas ni tampoco me he metido "hasta la cocina", por lo que esto es lo que hay:











Acerquémonos al pasillo rodante (visto desde el parking sobre Cercanías) que lleva desde el nuevo terminal de llegadas al hall de salida junto a la parada de los taxis:






Fijaos que aun están las unidades móviles de TV para la inauguración:













NOTA: no sé si hay un hilo más específico sobre este tema: si lo hay, pido disculpas: decidme cuál y muevo la información a ese hilo.

Espero que os haya gustado.

Saludos.

Even if Spain was to never build another HSL it already has one of the most expansive networks in the WORLD.

All of the major cities are connected to Madrid.

Not exactly. A Coruña, Bilbao for instance are not yet connected to Madrid by strictly segregated HSL.

good point, but that sentence is still valid not taking the northern projects into consideration. The current network would be the longest and faster (average speed) in europe.

And in ten years it will be also the best HSL network. The actual total use of the network is only the tip of the iceberg: when the rest of the lines start to operate, the total increase will be exponential.

Something that affects (negativelly) the French network a lot is the fact there are 4 different departure stations of HST services in Paris, making connections way harder without the use of cramped Métro or RER. This makes, for instance, less attractive connections between Eurostar and any other HST service.

I guess Spainish network will be way better in that aspect.
