Line?[edit]

Does it use a third rail or an overhead wire? Which current system is used?

Line 2[edit]

Why is there no line 2?? Georgia guy 00:04, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

The branch line from Ademuz to Betera was originally line 2. It was later merged with Line 1 when they extended the services from there to Villanueva de Castellon. Valenciano 17:49, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
The line 2 was the branch from Empalme to Lliria (his colour was the green) but about ten years ago FGV decided to explote it as a line-1 branch and it hadn't any relationship with the services to Villanueva de Castellón (the first train arrived to Villanueva de Castellon in 1917). New line 2 its been building from Orriols in the north to Nazaret in southeast as a tramway —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 81.203.153.148 (talk) 17:32, 11 February 2007 (UTC).

according to Urbanrail.net the real metro of Valencia:

Line 1 Empalme - Torrent 13.4 km (6.7 km underground), 14 stations, metro service (all the rest of line 1 is just only a suburban railway service, similar to the commuter line of the rest of the world. northing more)

Line 3-5 Metro service just in 14 km. all the rest is a suburban commuter service with the largest part with single track.

T2 and T4 are just normal tramways.

so Valencia metro have less than 28 kms of Metro.

all te rest is a joke.

UrbanRail.net doesn't say anything about those lines not being a metro line in fact quite the opposite as on this page it distinguishes between metro lines and light rail/suburban raillines. [[2]] and you could say the same about many other suburban metro lines in Europe - the met line in London is mainly suburban and runs on lines previously used by commuter trains. As lines like line 1 run metro trains they're considered a metro. I don't understand the rest of your points and - no offence - you should get a better english translator as they don't make sense in English. Valenciano 17:49, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

Move to metrovalencia[edit]

Should this be done? -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 23:59, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

--dual signage-- All Metrovalencia stations are signed in Valenciano. They are not dual langauge as incorrectly stated in the main article. I am able to supply photo evidence if necessary. Reference to <www.metrovalencia.es> will provide access to the full list of stations in Valenciano, together with access to the downloadable maps, all of which show the stations in one language - Valenciano.

--history-- The full history of Metrovalencia begins with the building of the lines in the late nineteenth century. I have access to documents covering this and can add this history of required. Johnfromcabanyal (talk) 21:26, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
