Former Railway Line in Caniles!

Post by XTreme » Sat May 23, 2020 2:14 pm

Spanish govt restrictions say that you have to be riding for a specific reason. Therefore I was going to the bike dealer in Baza and somehow took a wrong turning! We've all done it!

Amazingly I ended up at the site of the former Caniles railway station which first opened in 1894. It was located next to the former “Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes” sugar factory which shut down in 1973.

The line itself finally closed in 1984, but the former station buildings have since been restored, and the railway tracks have now been replaced by country walks.

In the early 70's in Britain there was miles of old former railway tracks right across the UK, and I used to follow them on my little Honda XL. Some of the stations were still standing as well.

Then they converted them into bloody nature walks so access for the likes of us was gone. Seems they did the same in Spain.

just down the road not far away there was an old railway yard several years ago with old steam locos as far as you could see buffer to buffer all rusting away and waiting to be cut up
