Madrid–Toledo high-speed rail line
The line shares the first 33 miles (53 km) with the LAV Madrid-Sevilla/Málaga to La Sagra line and then travels on a unique branch length of 13 miles (21 km) to the city of Toledo. The trip takes thirty minutes.
The new portion of the line was designed to support maximum speeds of 270 km/h, which is also the maximum speed allowed by the common core shared with the LAV Madrid-Sevilla/Málaga. Like all Spanish LAV's, the line has a track gauge of 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) standard gauge and is electrified at 25 kV AC.
The arrival of high speed rail to Toledo made clear the need to adapt the station to new needs. This was done by rehabilitating the historic station building, designed by Toledo architect Narciso Claveria in the Neo-Mudéjar style and opened in 1919.
Other amenities include an outdoor parking area. The lot is paved, lit, and covers an area of 7,500 square meters with capacity for 325 vehicles.
A highlight of the line is a one-mile viaduct spanning the Tagus River and the Valdecir stream.
