The provincial Sub-Delegate for the Central Government, Inmaculada López Calahorro, announced that the Madrid-Granada train service recommences this month.
According to the said politician, who qualified the confirmation as “magnificent,” the Madrid train via Linares will recommence service on the 26th of this month.
Bear in mind that Granada has been without a train connection for the last three years and a half, which is scandalous, to say the least.
When the great day arrives, trains will start running once a day, taking a little over five hours each way.
Leaving Granada at 07.35h, it will arrive in Madrid at 12.39h (5h-8m). The return journey leaves Chamartin (Madrid) at 16.58h and arrives at Granada at 22..10h (5h-12m). There is only one stop along the way, which is Moreda.
To launch this re-established route, you can obtain a ticket for just 20 euros during the first two weeks (starting November 26th) as long as the trip is made before the 3rd of March, 2019.
The train will comprise of six carriages (tourist class) and two (First Class) giving a combined total of 210 seats.
