The first plans for this Malaga to Fuengirola cercanias line, in the Royal Decree of 3 April 1878, contemplated construction of the Málaga to Campamento (La Linea) line via Churriana, Fuengirola, Marbella, and Estepona and linking the iron ore mines of Marbella with the ports of Málaga and Gibraltar. The concession was awarded to José Casado and Málaga and Gibraltar Railway Company of 46 Lombard Street, London. Despite acquiring a four-year extension to the concession in 1894, the "Malaga and Gibraltar Railway Company" had only constructed one kilometre of line in Málaga, earthworks in Fuengirola and a 400-metre tunnel between Estepona and Manilva which can still be seen today in the Bahía Dorada urbanisation.
