Spain uses technology German, French and other countries as well as developing its own technology. You should know better.


In fact, the wording of the draft HSL California is going to make a Spanish company (Ineco - Typsa).

Siemenes developing an evolution of the ICE for Renfe, faster and more powerful than the German ICE.

like how we are building ours with Spanish technical assistance. Germany and France helped you and you and Korea are helping us...

Actually although we are following you behind, we are copying Spanish Railways Development with its everything.

Amagaldu post photos about two stations: Bilbao - Abando (Adif station Iberian gauge) and Concordia Station (FEVE station narrow or metric gauge)

In this photo, you can see both, the big one are Abando, and on the right, a small station near the river is Concordia

Does CAF also use German technology for its highspeed trains and what about Talgo?

Because trains to French border left from that station until 1991. Now TALGO (train-hotel) from Barcelona to Paris departs from Estació de França.

France Station is one of the most beautiful old stations in Europe!

Thanks for the photos ARRi!

Príncipe Pío (Madrid)

This was the main station for trains to and from the north and northwest of Spain.

After the construction of Chamartin, became Suburban Station, and now is one of five interchanges, where people entering or leaving Madrid, can change their mode of transport, since that match the train station, with The three Metro lines and a new intercity bus station...


And a shopping mall

International Canfranc Station (Huesca)

Quote:
Canfranc Estación

This small village (altitude 1190 m.) was largely created due to the inauguration of a railroad crossing the Pyrenees on 18 July 1928. The trains continued running until an international train accident destroyed the bridge at nearby L'Estanguet and severed the link on March 27, 1970. Canfranc Estación is most well known due to the rumours of "German gold" arriving here during World War II (see external link below). Also, British espionage smuggled information and people from Vichy France to the consulate in San Sebastián through Canfranc since the nearer Irún bordered with occupied France. The train station is the highlight of the village and was used during the filming of Doctor Zhivago. There has been talk for some time of reopening international train traffic between France and Spain, but until that time the area is profiting from its nearness to the ski resorts of Candanchú and Astún. The current population is 454.

The tunnel is being used for the Laboratorio subterráneo de Canfranc (Canfranc underground laboratory).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canfranc

It is located in the Pyrenees, near the French border. And is connected to the network by a French railroad tunnel UIC gauge which is now closed and used as a laboratory.

Both the French and the Spanish railway line are single track, in different width and the French side was electrified.

In Canfranc, there was the transhipment of passengers, trains were divided into wide UIC beside the main building of this ibérico and width on the east side. In the main building, in addition to sell tickets and be located the passport office had a luxury hotel.

Since the closure of the line from the French side, the station just dying with a few train services.
