SANTA ANA TRAIN STATION 

Antequera Santa Ana station is the new Antequera train station on the AVE high speed rail line and is located about 17km to the north west of the town. It is just of the A-384 in the direction of Campillos.

When futuristic station building was opened on 16 December 2007 the stationi was critised as a white elephant in the middle of nowhere that cost 10m €. The critics was not unfounded as only a few of the Malaga Madrid AWE trains stopped on its two 240m long platforms.

Six years later when a loop in the Iberian gauge Granada to Seville line and a spur on the Algeciras to Granada with an third station platform were constructed has the station started to live. . When the high speed AVE line to Granada and Seville (direct and not via Cordoba) are completed, perhaps in 2016 and 2018 respectively it will be confirmed as the rail crossroads of Andalucia. Much the same as the Bobadilla was a hundred years ago.

The futuristic station building is open the the light with glass walls and a roof that comprises of three bands to allow more natural light to enter in the gaps between the layers.

There is also a rail link to the older (non high speed) rail network which incorporates a complex system for changing the gauge of the carriages (only certain trains can do this such as a series of adapted Talgo sets ) between the AVE standard gauge of 1.435mm and the Spanish broader gauge of 1.668mm.
