Here two video of the first commercial travel between A Coruña-Santiago-Ourense (Galice) on the North-Nortwest high speed line. The line is ready for travels at 250km/h speed between A Coruña and Santiago, and 350km/h Between Santiago and Ourense, but this travel is at top speed of 220km/h. Also the line between Olmedo and Ourense is under construction. Madrid - Olmedo is already working.

Thanks to the forumer Asannei that recorded it. He has a lot of train videos, just seek on youtube.

I just saw that Renfe had reduced the fastest scheduled travel time on the Madrid/Barcelona line to 2 hr 30 min.

Are there any other AVE routes that received an improved timetable?

But for trains with at least one stop (there are only five non-stops trains in weekly days, rest of them with stops), time reduced is less... nowadays. It will change soon.


Line to Valladolid will change soon.


Line to Sevilla, as far as I know, cannot change because maximum is 300 km/h (was built in 1992 with that specification). What I do not know is the branch Cordoba-Malaga.

The HSL Cordoba-Malaga is built for 350 km/h, but it hasn't been announced if the're going to increase the speed.

Also, are the 112 series going at 310 km/h now? Or the 103 series only?

Bad news - the occupancy rates on the new Galicia stretch of the high speed line, are very low. This may mean less investment in new lines, as Spain needs to convince foreign investors that it has its spending under control.

Occupancies are very low, but the number of passengers that travel from Santiago to Ourense is 7 times the passengers that travel before the HSL opened.

Between this two cities few people traveled by train. The journey spent 2 hours when you could get there in 1h30min by car.
I think that now, spending 38min, people will start to use the train, but it is need some time to have better ocupancies.

Otherwise, the trains used in the line have 280 seats, too much (so that the occupancy looks like it is worst).

Yes, let's hope that the numbers improve.
I read the fast line will go to Zamora in 2012? Is this correct?

280 seats mean 4 coaches, a quite small train...

It depends. Here, in Galicia, a place where a train spent double to get to a point compared with a car, people is not used to go by train. Now, it is faster and it can improve it's figures.

Currently the only one sure is Girona, in Barcelona - Figueres HSL, linking for the first time Spanish high speed standard gauge network to French standard gauge network, and thus to the rest of Europe.

Zamora and Alicante lines are a little delayed, I don't think they are going to open this year, although I hope I'm wrong.
