Old Railway Station in El Hijate

Post by XTreme » Sun Jul 12, 2020 3:21 pm

Continuing on my search for abandoned railway stations located on the old GSSR route (closed in 1985) I was planning to visit Tijola today.

But looking at the map I realised I hadn't done El Hijate yet, despite having done the stations before and after it.

So I thought I'd better pick that one up before I get further into Almeria itself.

Here's the map so far......the green spots are where I've already been.

In the interests of authenticity I managed to locate an old photo of El Hijate station in what appears to be around the 1950's.

That was then.....

And this is now....
