Old Railway Station and Bridge in Baul!

Post by XTreme » Sat Jul 04, 2020 3:31 pm

I've been continuing to follow the path of the former railway line that ran from Guadix (Granada) through Almeria, and ending up in Lorca (Murcia).

I've done Caniles and Seron stations.......and today I went to find Baul. This one was quite interesting as it hasn't been restored.....it remains as it was when it closed in 1984. So it's very authentic.

And just further on from the Station is the Baul Railway Bridge! It's a complex wrought iron structure that was assembled in 1907 to complete the line between Guadix and Baza. The last train to run across the bridge was on 31 December 1984.......and the line was then closed.

This one's going into two posts as there's a lot of pics!



First the Station.......
