I wonder how long it will take to finish the viaduct from this position. Another year perhaps?

Yes, it is cool no doubt. Do you find it more impressive than the viaduct over the same river on the high speed line? That one seems to be shorter, but much taller.

AFAIK it is diesel and 3 kV only, so it will have to run on diesel power when this line will be electrified (in 25 kV).

I don´t think that class 601 will be seen very often on this line.

The upgrade works carry on, reaching km 52+400 (exception being made of Almazán-Villa station, between the level crossings of the N-111 and the Gómara road)

The works at km 52+400:







Here, at km 51+600:





In hindsight, the N-111 level crossing:





Level crossing for CL-101 road, at the entrance of Almazán-Villa station from the Coscurita (and Madrid) side:





Km 48+100:





Soon, the platforms for the level crossings will be installed:





Km 45+600, shortly before the Coscurita advanced signal:







At Coscurita station, with DMU 599.004 ready to leave for Madrid with the passengers coming from Soria, Quintana Redonda, Tardelcuende and Almazán-Villa stations, who arrived here by bus:









Signal indicating that the station is open. We won´t see very often this aspect in the future (Coscurita station has been recently closed for passengers):





At 18:03, the bus arrives with the passengers:







And at 18:09, on time, the train leaves for Madrid-Chamartín:





Watching the arrivals at Madrid-Chamartín at the Adif web, we find the TRD 17301 coming from Coscurita, an unusual arrival indeed:



Regards.

Those are some excellent photos. Whoever made them has some skill in photography. The line looks really "lonely" though. How many trains a day does it have/will have?

Two trains per day and another one on weekend.
As far as I can remember, timetables remain the same since a long time. Perphaps some minutes more or less in departures but nothing special

Only two passengers trains per direction or are there even freight trains?
Only trains to/from Madrid?

How many inhabitants are there in the region of this line?

Thank in you in advance!
