Hopefully not.
But as of now, it is unclear wether it will still be needed or not.

For Easter, several extra trains will run over railways.

Extra Barcelona-Sevilla and Barcelona-Malaga (and vv) will run those days

In addition, the Barcelona-Ponferrada (and vv) using HSL Barcelona-Zaragoza will run several days. There are, obviously more trains there. Barcelona-Valladolid, Barcelona-Gijon and Barcelona-La Coruña/Vigo. This one it is just a supplement.

Madrid-Barcelona-Figueres Vilafant HSL.

Images taken at Can Tunis depot, between Bellvitge and El Prat de Llobregat stations on the classic line, or between Barcelona-Sants and Camp de Tarragona stations on the HSL (both lines run parallel there).

Valencia-Xàtiva-La Encina junction HSL.
Section Xàtiva-La Encina junction.

Image taken somewhere between Moixent and Vallada stations:


As you can see, here the HSL is already in service in Iberian gauge and under 3 kV, and is used as the classic main line.
The old main line is under reconstruction and double tracking (for now, only theoretical, but it´s likely that the second track will be installed in the future).
When the upgrade in the classic line is finished (it won´t take very long), the HSL will be closed to convert its gauge to standard and the electrification to 25 kV.

Add to that 6 km of the approach to Zamora, and you´ll have 41 km of double track between Olmedo and Zamora more or less. And 54 km of single track. Possible crossing points at Medina del Campo and Toro. For now.

Looking towards Olmedo junction:





Looking towards Zamora:



(Parallel lines meet in the infinity.)



The foundations for of the catenary poles are visible:



Greetings
I LOVE the second picture. It feels like crossing Kansas or something.

I wonder who informed you about that "schedule".

-some sections of Seville-Cadiz have been opened not long ago. Could be completely finished by the end of the year (or not), but this is not a HSL, it´s an upgrade of a classic line. The bits that won´t open this year will open in 2015.

2015:

-Olmedo junction-Medina del Campo AV-Zamora (on the Madrid-Galicia HSL) -on time.

-Santiago de Compostela-Pontevedra-Vigo Urzáiz -on time (we hope). It´s being opened by bits as it´s an upgrade and not a HSL proper. The bits that won´t open this year will open in 2015, except maybe the river Ulla viaduct and Vigo-Urzáiz station (which could open in 2016 if delayed -theoretically they´re both on time).

-Valladolid-Venta de Baños-Palencia-Leon -could be on time, could be for early 2016, we´ll see, we don´t know yet.

-Antequera Santa Ana-Loja and parts of Loja-Granada -could be on time, could be for early 2016, we don´t know yet.

-Monforte del Cid-Crevillente (HSL) and Crevillente-Murcia (upgrade) -probably not on time, may open in 2016, but we´re not sure yet.

-Vandellòs-Camp de Tarragona -on time (not a HSL, but the connection of a classic upgraded line to a HSL).

Some pics of the new high speed trains designed by the Spanish based rolling stock manufacturers.

Finally, on Monday 11th the prototype of Talgo Avril G3 has been moved from the Talgo factory in Northwest Madrid to the high speed facilities in La Sagra. Rollbocks are used for that purpose as Talgo factory is only linked to the Iberian gauge network. In La Sagra it will be able to reach standard gauge tracks of the HSL Madrid-Seville and the rest of the linked high speed network for dynamic testing.

In the background a Renfe 102 or 112 as well designed by Talgo running on the HSL.

And a video in the early morning of the train crossing the Valdemoro station.

Thanks!

Nope, they are not min at all, but usually I find and I use flickr pics (or any other third-party material) on national and international forums without problem as far as they are correctly copyrighted.

Anyway, where are those rules posted?
