  • Description: The purpose of the present paper is to analyse the experience of operating the Madrid-Seville line from 1992 to 2005 and then to describe the scenario that will result from the entry into service of the Madrid-Barcelona and Barcelona-Perpignan routes, within the European context. During the next decade, after the new line between Avignon and Perpignan (approximately 250 km) has been constructed, it will be possible to establish a very long high-speed route between London and Seville in southern Spain (over 2700 km), and this is when the international dimension of high-speed rail transport and its role as a structural element within Europe will acquire a new practical significance.
