Hi, I'm in the midst of planning my trip for next month to go from Toledo/Madrid to Granada then Seville. I was really counting on using trains to Move about that part of Spain like I did several years ago. It seems I'm hitting a brick wall when trying to buy train tickets..
After much checking, I finally, I found this below but its not dated... Does anyone know about this? Does anyone have any experience if indeed the info is accurate? Thank you,
"Due to works on the High Speed tracks, there’s currently no Altaria train to Granada. There are two temporary solutions: taking the AVE train to Antequera and a shuttle bus for the section Antequera – Granada, which takes around 4 hours, or a direct Talgo train running through Linares; this journey takes 5 hours 15 minutes.
If you're traveling with a Eurail Pass you don't need to buy a ticket and only pay a small reservation fee. We recommend you book your seats as far in advance as possible.
Granada to Antequera long-term engineering works
Long-term engineering works are scheduled on the Granada and Antequera line. During this time, buses will replace trains from Granada to Antequera.
Routes from Granada to Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Ronda and Algeciras are affected. The trains from Granada to Guadix and Almeria are running exactly as normal.
The train services from Seville, Madrid, Barcelona, Cordoba to Antequera will run as normal where passengers will need to transfer to a bus for the final part of the journey to Granada. The bus transfer takes between 70 and 85 minutes."
