    Hello everybody . Today I want to suggest a Spanish route for the game (so that later some will say that there are not enough suggestions) ....... It is about the Madrid suburban line C1, which runs from principe pio to terminal 4 of the airport from Madrid barajas

    This line runs through the Green Railway Passage, the eastern laughter tunnel between Atocha and Chamartín, the northeast section of the Madrid Circunvalación Railway and the new underground railway line to Madrid-Barajas Airport in a route that is 23.6 km for which 38 minutes are invested.

    The average frequency of trains on this line is 30 minutes per direction.

    It was the first in which the public address system of the trains (Renfe series 465 known as Civia) announced the stations in both Spanish and English, in addition to announcing correspondence with the services that Renfe offers in the Chamartín and Atocha stations (AVE trains , Long Distance and Medium Distance), and part of the public address system for the MD 449 and 599 trains has been included, specifically, the one that says train to destination.

    Stations of the line :
    1) Principe pio ( First station )
    2) Piramides
    3) Delicias
    4) Mendez Álvaro
    5) Atocha ( most important station of spain )
    6) Recoletos
    7 ) Nuevos ministerios
    8 ) Chamartín
    9 ) Fuente de la mora
    10 ) Valdebebas
    11) Aeropuerto T4


    technical characteristics of the line
    1) ASFA safety system
    2) 23,2 km of lenght
    3) two types of electrification ( 3000V cc and 25000V cc )
    4)1668mm track width
    5) This line passes through the two most important stations in all of Spain


    Rolling Material :
    1) UT 446
    2) UT 450
    3) UT 465

    and now it's time for photos :)

    Conclution :

    Why do I think this would be a good DLC for the game?

    Well, for the following reasons:
    1) It's a whole new country
    2) It is one of the busiest suburban lines in Spain
    3) For roush hour this is perfect since Atocha is one of the busiest passenger station in all of Spain
    4) is a line that connects the city center with the airport


    if you still want to see how this line is .... here is a video.
    Thank you very much, greetings and a big hug to all of you :)

    Speaking of the Spanish ASFA system is it like PZB where you must acknowledge it or some Madrid Atocha commuter lines 3kv DC 1.66m track gauge and the Madrid to Seville high-speed 1.45m track gauge line using LZB where failure to acknowledge the end of LZB triggers Zwangsbremsung.

    ASFA is a punctual supervision system through beacons. ASFA beacons have more than 10 frequencies

    Love this idea. I think it would be a great addition to the game. We definitely need Spain in TSW.
