The Madrid–Valladolid high-speed rail line (Spanish language: Línea de Alta Velocidad Madrid - Segovia - Valladolid) opened for commercial service on 23 December 2007 and is the first instalment of a high-speed rail corridor in the north and northwest of Spain. The line is built to standard gauge and gauge changers are provided at strategic points to allow interchange with older Spanish railways which were built to Iberian gauge.

Plan for 2005-2020

According to this, the line will be connected with the following:
(L.A.V. = Línea de Alta Velocidad)

Features

This line is constructed for trains running at up to 350 km/h. ERTMS type II signaling and ASFA digital diversion clearance of 220 km / h and a reduction of over 70 km (28%) compared to General layout of the Northern Line or Imperial tunnels through San Pedro and Guadarrama, 9 and 28 km respectively. It has reduced journey times between Madrid and Valladolid from 2½ hours to 56 minutes (average speed of 192 km/h). Gauge changers are installed at Chamartin Valdestillas and Valladolid and this has reduced travel times on all routes between Madrid and the north-northwest of Spain.

Reduced travel times

Talgo trains were replaced by Alvia trains (RENFE Class 130) and these operate on both the high-speed line and the older lines.

These trains pass through the gauge changers at Valladolid and Valdestillas or to join the General Line North from this high speed line and back by reducing their travel time by reducing the distance and increasing the commercial speed in the stretch Madrid–Valladolid.

The Talgo Madrid-Galicia was diverted later by LAV circulating until Valdestillas changer, which reverses the direction of travel and change of locomotive. In this case the time reduction has been lower, only 15-20 min, while in the Galicia-Madrid train has been an advantage to using the best line to be able to recover the backlog.
