Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat Valenciana

Summary:

The railways of the generality of Valencia (Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat Valenciana FGV) are constitued of 2 separate metre-gauge networks:

"Metrovalencia" network


Alicante network


Subway / Rapid transit


Tramways of València


Line Alicante-Denia


Tramways of Alicante

See also the page Alicante
The Metrovalència includes the subway, the rapid transit and the tramway lines in Valencia. The line 4 (Tramway) is electrificated with 750v DC, the other lines with 1500v DC.

The
Alicante-Denia line is now being electrificated with 750v DC. The part Alicante (La Marina) - El Campello, already electrificated, is exploited as an urban tramway urbain as "Tram Alicante", the rest between El Campello, Benidorm and Denia is exploited with MAN DMUs. 


FGV Metrovalencia


Subway / Rapid transit network
The FGV owns 4 lines in Valencia:
- Line 1: Villanueva de Castellón or Torrent Avinguda to Llíria or Bétera (about 70kms long!)
- Line 3: Mislata-Almassil to Rafelbunyol
- Line 4 (Tramway): Vincente Andres E. or Mas del Rosari to Doctor Lluch
- Line 5: Torrent Avinguda or Avenida del Cid to Ayora

The subway workshops are located at
València-Sud (lines 1 and 5), these for the tramways at La Serreria (line 4). There is always lots of good photographable stock at València-Sud, but beware: because of the proximity of the workshops, this station is one of the few of the FGV being always guarded by security guards!
