INTRODUCTION
Hundreds of thousands of people travel through Spain and Portugal by train each year, most armed with a Eurail or Inter-rail pass, but with only the most basic knowledge of the cities they are to visit, and even less of the Spanish and Portuguese railway networks. It is for these travellers that this book is written.
Until now, few details of the Spanish railway network have been available outside Spain. Even there - apart from timetables and a plan of the network with some helpful hints - such information is not readily available. Recognising these facts, I had discussions with senior executives of Red Nacional de los Ferrocarriles Espanoles -universally known as RENFE, the organisation that runs the Spanish railway - and they agreed to both sponsor and co-operate with me in the writing of a new, definitive guide in order to provide all the necessary information to travellers before they leave home. The routes mentioned are those run by the state railways, RENFE and CP, which are of particular interest to the tourist. They are by no means exhaustive, and the traveller will of necessity need to consult a current timetable.
Every large railway network has its own idiosyncrasies and RENFE is no exception. There is therefore a chapter detailing the important things a traveller needs to know about the system, together with information about the network and national and international services and trains, and a glossary of terms. Although much of this information is relevant to rail travel in both Spain and Portugal, those planning to visit Portugal will find information specific to the Portuguese railway network, Caminhos de Ferro Portugueses (CP), in Part Three, Portugal.
Each large city and town has its own section. With the interests of the Inter-rail or Eurail traveller in mind, only the most important cities have been covered, with a view to giving all the relevant information needed for those arriving in a city by train for a limited stay. Those that have been included, with the exception of Algeciras, the main ferry port for services to North Africa, all have places of exceptional historic or cultural interest.
