Don´t mind me on that, I was thinking about the photo forums (you know, the "SPAIN | One photo per post" threads and so on). Sorry.

You can take a look at them though, they´re in the Photos subforum.

Hey!

Talking about photos. I'd love to see photos of the Spanish High Speed Trains in service (not under construction).

Is there a photo Thread somewhere with excellent Spanish trains in their breathtaking scenery? :-)

Nice video!
Question the Alicante, Elche, Murcia part, is that part of the Mediterraneo line and if so there are planns for a higher speed train from Alicante to Valencia. ( Is already rather fast I believe)

Sad thing still is the strange hump to Cuenca, but I will get over it.
Maybe.

Isn't this a complete new line? At some parts the lines go parallel, but never go to make one no, maybe at Orihuela but I doubt it to be hounest.

You´re Spanish, aren´t you?
Then you might as well ask that (and find out the answer) in the Spanish forum.

To other readers, the answer to the first question is "yes" and to the second one, "no".

Two lines seen from the station of a third line:

Madrid-Barcelona-Figueres Vilafant HSL (on a spectacular viaduct) and El Papiol-Barcelona Can Tunis freight line, seen from Cornellà de Llobregat station (on the Barcelona-Martorell-Sant Vicenç de Calders line).

Viaduct over river Pisuerga.

Villaluenga Yuncler-Villaseca Mocejón-Algodor line.
Villaseca-Mocejón station.


The new Avril Talgo prototype, entering the La Sagra HS depot, probably for some tests.

It will be a really nightmare for a while.

Palencia has only three platforms and another track without platform.

It is planned to have standard gauge in the two first ones (considering the main building), conventional gauge in the third one, and also in the fourth one (no possibility for passengers, only freight or so on).

For "conventional gauge" he means "Iberian gauge".

Madrid-Galicia HSL.
Section Olmedo junction-Zamora.

In hindsight we can tell the flyover of the Olmedo junction.

Only the track on the left is in service, since it connects with the classic branch line to Medina del Campo station and the classic line to Zamora and Salamanca (and Valladolid, just in case). The second track is not connected to the classic line, but both already have the electrification finished, apparently.

Madrid-Galicia HSL.
Section Olmedo junction-Zamora.

Images taken between the Olmedo junction and Medina del Campo-AV.

Section through which runs the classic branch line (remaining spurt from the old classic Segovia-Medina del Campo classic line, closed between Olmedo and Segovia). The part of it that´s closer to the Olmedo junction is being doubletracked as part of the HSL. Now there is a point which leads to Medina del Campo classic line station, where the old classic line and the HSL diverge, and it´s currently used by the Alvias to Galicia. The section has dual gauge (the first in Spain, it started out as an experimental section).

Behind this platform can be seen the dual gauge Access to the Olmedo maintenance base. In said base there are points, ready to be installed on the line at the right time.









Just at the beginning of the new HSL platform towards Zamora, past the point for Medina del Campo classic line station, we can see on track 1 a class 319 loco, owned by Continental.







The HSL crosses over the classic line through a viaduct.



Greetings
