Train circulation between Atocha and Recoletos was restored this morning

The circulation of the railroad in the section Atocha-Recoletos Madrid “was restored in the early hours of Sunday following the work carried out by Adif and Renfe on the section,” Renfe reported in a statement.

The company detailed that about 60 workers from Renfe and Adif participated in the actions to restore normal circulation, “in addition to the reinforcement of staff from the information and customer service teams of Cercanías de Madrid.”

The restoration of the circulation of the two railways between Atocha and Recoletos allows the recovery of the usual service of the Cercanías lines, as well as of medium and long distance trains with origin or destination Alcázar de San Juan, Jaén, Almería, or Extremadura, which circulates in this section.

Madrid demands that Puente “manage” the Cercanías problems and prevent “something serious” from happening

During the change of service resulting from this incident, Renfe reports that “it is making an extra effort to provide information to its customers through all communication and travel service channels.”

The Minister of Transport and Sustainable Mobility, Oscar Pontehe, published on the social network the Adif report about the possible causes of three recent derailments of the Atocha trains, concluding that one was caused by a broken needle, but in the other two there was no clear cause.

The report published by the minister was prepared by ADIF in relation to the incidents that occurred in the Atocha-Recoletos tunnel, consisting of the derailment of a Talgo on November 26 and two commuter trains that occurred on December 5 and 8.

Madrid estimates that the government of Sánchez has invested in Cercanías in only 819 million in five years

The design of the route layout, according to ADIF, is “absolutely correct,” and the checks carried out “in the maintenance framework are also adequate.”

The report added that “the measures taken gave a correct result, with no relevant information that could justify the derailments.”
