Excellent photos Bitxofo! Thanks!

Does anyone know if the Talgo and ICE versions of the AVE will run the same route? If so, why? Also, Bitxofo - Do these coaches use Jacobs trucks (one set for two cars)? They seem to have the same profile as the ICE 3, only with bigger windows and lower floors.

TALGO and ICE3 versions of the AVE will run from Barcelona to Madrid and vice versa in 2007, with a top speed of 350km/h.

ICE3 Velaro or AVE 103:

the interior looks fantastic though. gotta travel on one of these sometime
and also the airplane style screen showing how far you are is a nice touch! I wish we had those on some of our trains

I have never seen aircraft style displays showing how far you have travelled / are yet to travel on a train before.

i traveled last year with Thomac Cook airlines which do have such displays showing the entire route and the distance you have traveled and some more informations. there was also a camera on the bottom of the plane showing what happens under the machine while starting or landing. that was soooo great! i wish there will be such displays in all trains, too showing where you are and where will the train stop or somethionk like this.

Hi,

I saw the TV displays showing how far travelled / yet to travel when I flew to Australia (from London) back in 1991.

But this is the first time I have seen this on a train!

TALGO is the name of the company that have made that train. AVE is the name for all spanish high speed train. it means ''Alta Velocidad Española'' (spanish high speed)

these ''ducks'' are operating now on the AVE line Madrid-LLeida

As a complement of the information willo gave us, I'll add more details on the topic. TALGO is the name of the company, standing for 'Tren Articulado Ligero Goicoechea Oriol' (wich means, literally: 'Light Articulate Train Goicoechea Oriol', with the last two words coming from the Spanish developers' surnames). AVE ('Alta Velocidad Española' - 'Spanish High Speed') is now the name of the product offered by the railway company RENFE (more acronyms, lol: 'REd Nacional de FErrocarriles' - 'National Railway Network'). People commonly use the term AVE alluding to other services such as the so-called 'Shuttles' between Seville-Córdoba or Madrid-Puertollano, though, even if these services are not really part of the AVE services offered by Renfe (high speed lines, high speed trains, but different name).

That's it
