The Antequera to Granada section of this line has not had a regional train service since the line was closed in 2015 due to construction of the AVE line from Antequera to Granada. Renfe have not confirmed when the service will be restored. It is hoped the service will be resumed in late 2019 although it is entirely possible that it will never be resumed. Due to the low frequency of AVE trains on the new line it is more likely that a dual gauge Talgo style service. will be introduced. Currently Passengers who book a regional ticket on this route will take a special bus service from Antequera to Granada. The AVE service runs on the Antequera to Granada line.
