Seville-Santa Justa station.

The main station in Seville, this is the terminus for the Madrid-Seville HSL (AVE services for Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona, Alvia services for Cádiz and Gijón, and Avant services for Málaga), a remaining Long Distance train (a Talgo for Barcelona via Alcázar de San Juan-Albacete-Valencia), and it also sees lots of commuter trains (Cercanías Renfe, five different lines) and some regional rail services (to Osuna, Cádiz, Málaga, Almería, Córdoba, Jaén, Huelva and Cáceres).

The station is not yet linked to the tramway nor the metro of Seville...

Malaga-Maria Zambrano station.

The main station in Malaga (which will be connected to the metro-tram network, currently in the final stages of construction) has eight bay platforms, three in Iberian gauge for regional rail (for Seville via Osuna), and five in standard gauge for HSL (AVE to Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona, Avant to Seville via Cordoba). It also has two underground through platforms, for the commuter trains (Cercanías Renfe, to Alora, the airport, Torremolinos and Fuengirola). From one of the sidings starts the branch line to the port of Malaga.

Ponferrada-Villablino line.
Alinos loop, between Toreno and Matarrosa del Sil stations.

This private line is now closed, it seems (or at least, sees no traffic).
Albeit it used to see passenger trains, it stopped decades ago, and it became a freight-only line.
It also was the last line to have regular steam trains in Spain, until the 1980s.

For those that don't know it, is a metre-gauge line lastly used only for coal trains and without connection with the European network.

I can't find anymore the photo showing switches, but I found this one:



And this one:



Then still about triple gauge tracks there is this one, taken by myself on 30.11.2011 in the national rail museum in New Delhi (however, these are just display tracks, very rarely used by moving trains). The gauges might be 750-1000-1676 but I'm not sure.

Nice pictures, very nice stations, but where are the travellers? In a few you see a few people, but nowhere near enough to justify the large stations.

People often try to make this kind of photographs without people appearing on them...

Some Spanish stations have few passengers, especially those located far from the cities they serve, but that is not the case neither in Sevilla nor in Málaga, as they are the 4th and 6th Spanish cities in terms of population and their stations have a central location and a lot of services, both have HSR and Cercanías (commuter trains).

Indeed, it´s just that carlesnuc chooses to have fair shots with not a lot of people.
I might tell him to show the people one day, but in the end, they´re his pictures, so it´s his choice.

But I like a lot the approach of minato_ku´s, too. They show things the way they really are more.

Back cab ride from Burgos to León, via the Venta de Baños by-pass.
The train is an Alvia Barcelona-Corunna (or Barcelona-Vigo?), served by a class 130 train.
