It's a new line and they haven't installed electrification yet.

There are diesel loco that can run up to 200 and change gauge. Quite cool for non electrified lines and using partially HSL

Special beast that you can encounter in Spain only. This is an electric high
speed train (you can see the pantos - although not raised - atop the first
and last vehicles of the rake) but for non electrified sections, there are two
special trailers, just near the locos, with a diesel prime mover and generator.

It's multi gauge (uic and Iberian and it changes the gauge without stopping), multi Power source (electricity and diesel) and multi voltage (25kV AC and 3kV CC).

The commercial service is called Alvia.

Are the rails themselves produced in Spain? It's a serious quantity of iron for all the new railways recently built.

I guess they must be, yes. From Asturias, probably.
But I don´t really know, so I´ll ask, keep an eye for the answer in a while.

I've never been to Spain and don't know its geography at all well.

I'm very impressed however, with all the rail expansion going on in your country. Thanks to everyone for posting so many pics of the works.
