Thursday 15th September 2022
Another early start this morning; from just south of Cáceres to just north of Mérida we used the new high speed line, here it completely replaces the original route; I stayed on the train to the terminus at Sevilla Santa Justa. Next part of the plan was to do the single metro route and the single tram route here in Sevilla. Both pass through San Bernardo, one stop on the Cercanías south of Santa Justa. I got told off by the security guys for taking photographs at the metro western terminus at Ciudad Expo: on closer inspection of the Terms and Conditions I did note that photography is not allowed. I wonder why? Anyway out to the eastern terminus at Oliver de Quintos then back to San Bernardo. Upstairs next into the street for the short (five stops) tram route, from San Bernardo to Plaza Nueva. Part of the tram route is conventionally wired, but part is on battery, with a charging station at each tram stop. Then back to Santa Justa with a couple of hours wait for the train to Huelva to meet my sister and other family. Note it was too hot for any more sightseeing!
