Works on the Barcelona to Madrid route are almost complete. A direct train service between Barcelona and Madrid now runs three days a week (Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays) which will take four hours.
In addition, two trains will make the journey on Fridays. From December 25, one train will run on Mondays and from January 1, the service will operate on Sundays.
The Barcelona to Sitges stretch is almost complete, but still suffering delays. With the weather cold, you don't get to see nice builders with their kit off like the one above…. but there are still some cute ones about.
