Algeciras railway station

Algeciras railway station is the present terminus of Mr Henderson's Railway which connects Ronda with the Spanish rail network at Bobadilla for main lines to Granada, Malaga, Cordoba and Madrid.

 

 

The station is located in the upper part of the town and a few kilometers from the port due to a historical requirement to be out of range of the Gibraltar 100-ton gun (cannon).

The present Algeciras railway station was opened in 1982, following the closure of the link to the "Estacion del Puerto" (port station) for those passengers wishing to catch ferries to Ceuta and Tangiers.

Station facilities include ticket office, ticket machines, large waiting room, toilets, cafe, paid car park, taxi rank. The building is open from 6.15am to 10pm.

HISTORY

The original 1890 station is located at the far end of the present platforms. A much more interesting building, it has been restored and houses administration offices, with the 'Asociacion de Amigos del Ferrocaril de Algeciras' occupying the first floor.

José Roballo, Jorge Rodriguez and 20 members, most of whom either work or worked on the railway, are constructing a hand-painted scale model of the Mr Henderson's railway line as a six-year self-funded project. Railway memorabilia relating to the line can be viewed on Saturday 5pm-9pm (approx). Interesting Henderson artifacts on display include a 'Milners Patent Fire Resisting Safe' and a ‘W Rains& Co London works Birmingham' cast-iron signal mast, as well as plans and blueprints for the failed Algeciras to Jerez railway.
