la estacion se está reconvirtiendo para albergar un hotel de lujo y es realmente impresionante...
y no hay en las fotos lado frances....todo eso esta en territorio español lo que pasa es que en algunas fotos ya esta tapada la estacion con andamios por el proceso de restauracion y parece otro sitio...

lo mas importante es que la estacion se dignificara todo lo que se merece y ya se han dado pasos desde los gobiernos frances y aragones para poner de nuevo en funcionamiento el paso transfronterizo por el tunel del somport y esta estacion


lo sinto...pero el ingles lo suelo entender...pero escribirlo a mi se me da fatal...

Ok, I wrote "side french", I tried to say the zone with UIC gauge, when the French trains arrived.

Some videos of the different kinds of trains in Spain!!

I'll start with Talgo trainsets!! maybe the most famous spanish trains...


Talgo III...This is the Talgo "Miguel de Unamuno"...it runs between Barcelona Sants to Salamanca, Irun and Bilbao...Now runs with the Serie 252 loco at 160kmh apx!








Here, with the 269 loco!

Now, some videos of the Talgo IV...now its replacing some services of the serie III...and also have been replaced by modern trains in other routes...

This video is taked at Pinar de Antequera, near Valladolid, this train did Alicante-Santander service, now a Renfe S130 do this travel!

The Talgo VI, is for me one of the best looking trains in Spain...and maybe the best looking talgos, for me...above the "TrenHotel" with Talgo VI cars...that's beautiful!!


Talgo VI "Marenostrum" from Cartagena to Montpellier (france)...near Barcelona!





Talgo VI "Garcia Lorca" from Lorca to Barcelona near Valencia!





Now its turn for the nice trainhotel!!

Trainhotel "Francisco de Goya" Madrid-Paris - Talgo VI








Trainhotel "Joan Miró" Barcelona-Paris - Talgo VI





Trainhotel A Coruña-Madrid!





Trainhotel "Lusitania" Madrid-Lisboa with the new deliverie for a Talgo VI!





Trainhotel "Antonio Machado" Barcelona-Granada/Malaga!

Yesterday the last train crossed the city of Burgos. The tracks were there since 1862 , with the trains disturbing the neighbours. A new bypass north of the city was opened. This is how the people celebrated (Yes, we celebrate everything in Spain ).

No, they have yet to install ERTMS level 2. The only line in Spain that is authorized for 350km/h service is Madrid-Valladolid, although no timetabled service exceed 300km/h yet.

Yeah, that makes sense: the line to Valladolid is - until one day it is prolonged toward Galicia, the Basque Country and so on - not long enough to make it worth their while to raise the speed. How much difference would 350 km/h instead of 300 km/h make? You could probably count the minutes saved on one hand.

The Chinese CRH3 [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CRH3 ] is a wider version of Velaro. Both CRH2 (based on Japanese Shinkansen) and CRH3 (based on German ICE) serve the Beijing-Tianjin line [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beijing...Intercity_Rail ]. 14 trainset are serving the line presently (CRH2-061C to -066C, CRH3-001C, 002A, 004A, 005C, 006C, and recently 007C and 008C) The line was opened on August 1. They claimed its operational speed is 350 km/h, and I saw it ran at up to 352 km/h on the first ten days. According to my GPS, it started to slow down to a maximum speed of 340 km/h from August 11, and now seems at a maximum speed of 335 km/h. I take this train almost every day and have about one hundred GPS records. I can post them somewhere if anyone is interested in the records.

(They line was suffered from a bad snow in mid-December, and trains slowed down to 290 km/h on the following two days, but trains were only 2 minutes late, so 300 km/h or 350 km/h seems make very little difference in travel time)

I've been few times on the Tianjin-Beijin line and personally noticed top speed (on teh display in the trains (both Velaro CN and Kawasaki) of 349 km/h.
One thing you have to take into consideration is that during morning rush hour the interval between trains running at such a brake neck speed could be as short as 6 minutes!!!
All-in-all Beijing-Tianjin line is currently fastest in the world. At this speed ride is extremely smooth and quiet. Much more so than Maglev one in Shanghai.
Comparing two I see the reason why highspeed line between Beijing and Shanghai at teh end had been built with conventional rail technology.

So ERTMS II not started yet but slowly they already prepare to upgrade to 380 kmh with the future Talgo AVRIL.

380 kmh is impressive, but given that aerodynamic drag and energy consumption are proportional to square of speed I wonder if that would be profitable.

1- In china they seem to use both the german and the japanese concrete trackbed systems

2- Renfe doesn't need to rush the operations at 350km/h precisely because of the same question that the chinese are facing ... go too fast all the way and you have a great time to "kill" at the end of the journey.

My thought exactly. 350 km/h is already stretching it: by raising the speed from 300 to 350 km/h you increase energy consumption by about a third. I have the impression that these increases in top speed are largely pending technological advances. By this I mean, whenever the development of new materials, etc. would allow, in principle, a lowering of the energy consumption the HS operators jump on the opportunity to raise the top speed instead.
