Bilbao-León line (narrow gauge, ex-Feve, now Renfe, but the videos were shot when it was still Feve).

Castrejón de la Peña station.

Ferrol-Oviedo line (narrow gauge).
Evening crossing of two Regional trains at Ribadeo station (Lugo province, Galicia, NW Spain).

The Regional Oviedo-Ferrol, served by a 2700 DMU, leaves from the track next to the station building.
The Regional Ferrol-Oviedo, served by an older 2400 DMU, leaves and passes under the bridge.





León-Bilbao line (narrow gauge).

Crossing at Vado-Cervera station, between the Regional León-Bilbao, served by a 2700 DMU, and a freight train carrying coal, and pushed by a trio of class 1500 locos:





Some videos of the period, in the 1990s, when the León-Bilbao line was closed for passenger service between Boñar anbd Balmaseda, due to the terrible state of the infrastructure. Luckily, it was finally upgraded and passenger service restarted:





The station in the last images of the above video () is Mataporquera, and that´s where the next video starts.
It´s a cab ride on a class 1500 loco, between near Los Carabeos and near Las Rozas de Valdearroyo stations, passing through Montes Claros station:





Second part of the last video, from Las Rozas de Valdearroyo till Arija station.

Cercanías Malaga. Line C1 (Malaga-Fuengirola).

This is one of the most used commuter trains in Spain.
The line is not fully double-tracked yet.
Services are assured by class S-464 EMUs.

Some images taken at Malaga-Maria Zambrano, Aeropuerto, La Colina, and Benalmádena-Arroyo de la Miel stations:



Another video, this time filmed near Torremuelle station:



At Plaza Mayor station:



At Torremolinos station.
The footage includes a back cab view of the the old surface Guadalhorce station (now underground):



A S-446 EMU entering Torremolinos station. They were replaced by class S-464 a few years ago:



More trains at Malaga-Maria Zambrano and Victoria Kent stations (one of them on a C2 service bound for Alora, the other commuter line in Malaga):

Some news in Spanish Railways.

until today there was a 20% reduction for a return ticket. In fact you paid the single ticket with the full fare and a 40% reduction in the return one.

Nowadays they allow a "circle journey". This is, you can leave Madrid to Burgos (trip A), going to Barcelona (trip B) and returning to Madrid (trip C).

If you buy all of them together they will give you the 20% in all those tickets.

Stations must be in the same city (Madrid-Atocha and Madrid-Chamartin for instance are considered as the same one) as well as there are quite near stations which are considered the same one (such us Antequera and Antequera-Sta. Ana, Tarragona and Camp de Tarragona, and so on)

and according to bikes:

Commuter trains keep bikes free but depending of lines there are schedule restrictions

Regional trains will allow them free if they are packed as a baggage or you will have to pay three euro to carry without packaging
(it was free until now)

Long distance trains (AVE, Alvia, etc...) will allow packed bikes free (they didn't allow until now)

It doesn't have sense to charge for bikes in some regional trains... but at least it's reasonable...

I remember that a friend got a flat tyre in Germany so we had to go back to Netherlands by train... I think that the bike ticket was free or inexpensive in Germany until the border where we had to change to the Dutch train... and they tried to charge us 20€ per bike for a single station!

They said "ohhhh it's not expensive! you can go wherever you want inside Netherlands for the whole day!" but... "we don't need to cross the country, we need to go to the next station because he got a flat tyre!"...

So finally we had to walk for an hour to avoid that overpriced charge...

There is a 3 euro price for any regional price if the bike is not packed, nevertheless which journey you take (only in regional trains).

In commuter trains it is free.

What it is quite funny is in my city.

Let's think on a regional train Zaragoza-Miraflores ==> Castejón de Ebro.

Let's think I'm in Casetas station.

If I want to go to Zaragoza (any station) I can take that train paying a commuter ticket (although it is regional train they offer you to use there as commuter in order to increase the number of service with the same cost). Therefore I'll pay only 1,70 euro and bike is free in that train.
It is 23 minutes until the last station in Zaragoza, something less if you stop before.

But... if you take the same train in the opposite direction until the next station, Alagon, you have to pay 2,05 euro for the single ticket and... you may choose. Bike packed free or bike unpacked with three euro!!

Pictures of Lorca-Sutullena station, in the Region of Murcia (SE Spain).
The station is under restoration works, since it was heavily damaged by the earthquake that hit Lorca a few years ago.

I start writing here to advise everyone the change of thread of the conversation about 'SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA CRASH'

Because it has not been a high-speed crash, not on a HSL, and even not with a high speed train.

The conventional railways' thread is the proper place to talk about this.

There's a video of the view from the driver's cab of a train which shows clearly how slowly the bend ought to have been taken.

Well I found it useful - it makes the accident footage look that much more terrible to me.

zazo, the correct thread is the high-speed rail thread.

It was on a HSL (albeit at the very end of it), the train was running at 190km/h, coming from a sector of 220 km/h (but the line is/will be prepared for 300 km/h), and the train that crashed is capable of 250 km/h.

I still agree that it wasn't a high speed train but a fast conventional train and althought it just left a HSL, it was on a "Conventional Speed Stretch" as it was a stretch leading trains from the HSL to a station that even shares the way with the conventional railway...

Castelldefels station (Barcelona province) on March 5, 1991.

Cercanías (commuter train) services were just starting. The concept was an improvement (new fare system by zones).

The first HSL (Madrid-Seville) was still in Works, and wouldn´t open till next year.



What you can see, in order of appearance:

-00.00: a class 440 EMU (the remaining were renumbered into class 470), in its original classic livery, south bound (for Vilanova, Sant Vicenç de Calders or Tarragona).

-00:25: a class 440 EMU in its by then brand new Cercanías (commuter) livery, north bound (for Barcelona).

-01:23: two class 311 locos, south bound. They still run.

-01:57: a class 276 Alsthom loco in its original livery, north bound, pulling a salt train from Flix to Manresa (now this train runs through another line).
Class 276 were withdrawn long ago.

-02:34: a class 269.2 Mitsubishi loco, in its original livery, pulling a Talgo III set, rushing south bound (to Madrid? Alicante? Cartagena? Valencia? Bilbao?).
These locos still run, the Talgo III sets don´t.

-02:49: a class 440 EMU in its original livery rushing south bound.

-03:01: a class 440 EMU in Cercanías livery, south bound (probably for Vilanova).

-03:24: a double-decker 450 set, pushed by a Mitsubishi class 269.2 loco in Cercanías livery, north bound (for Granollers Centre).
You can still see the 450 EMUs at Castelldefels, but by that time, they still were push-pull sets, they didn´t have motor.

-04:43: a class 436.500 EMU (nicknamed "Suizas"), rushing south bound. They were withdrawn long ago.

-04:59: a Mitsubishi class 269 loco (unknown sub-class) rushes pulling a Talgo III set south bound.

-05:15: a double-decker 450 set, pulled by a class 269.2, rushes north bound.

-05:43: a class 440 EMU in Cercanías livery, south bound.

-05:57: a class 444.0 EMU (Electrotren), in Intercity livery, rushes south bound, but I´m not sure if that was an real long-distance Intercity or a Regional.

-06:08: a class 444.0 EMU in its original livery rushes north bound.
Class 444.0 were withdrawn years ago.

-06:23: another class 444.0 EMU in original livery rushing north bound. Note that it was traveling with at least two doors open. That was the reason why class 444.0 were withdrawn. Their younger brothers (class 444.5), still run, renumbered as class 448.

-06:39: an Alsthom class 276 loco in its final livery with a freight train, rushes south bound. Class 276 were withdrawn a long ago.

-07:14: a Mitsubishi class 269.0 rushes south bound, on its own. I´m not sure wether class 269.0 still run or not.

-07:27: a class 440 EMU in Cercanías livery rushes south bound.

-07:40: a class 440 EMU in Cercanías livery, north bound.

-08:02: a Mitsubishi class 269.2 pulling a class 450 Cercanías double-decker set, south bound.

-09:15: surprise! A class 319 diesel loco calls at the station. They were withdrawn a long ago. Current class 319 locos have very little to do with them.

-10:02: another Mitsubishi class 269.2 loco rushes pulling a Cercanías class 450 set, south bound...

-10:12: ... while a class 444.0 in Intercity livery rushes north bound.

-10:27: an Alsthom class 276 loco in its original livery rushes south bound, with the Manresa-Flix salt train.
