Jimena de la Frontera Railway Station
Jimena de la Frontera railway station is in a district of the hilltown called Los Angeles. It is located in a square close to the A369 San Roque to Gaucin road.
There are three trains a day in each direction for Algeciras, Ronda and Granada. The station is manned and in good condition with waiting room, ticket office and toilets. Two of the three platforms are currently used, with a level crossing at the end of one platform. There is an engineering work depot opposite the station and track maintenance equipment is kept in the sidings.

The original 1890 station houses the waiting room and the ticket office. The single-storey pitched-roof white building with Andalucian yellow trim around doors and windows is well maintained. No Henderson artifacts can be seen in the station. A wood-fringed canopy, supported on wrought-iron pillars attached to the building and spanning the adjacent platform, lends it an 'anglo' or, some would say, colonial Indian look.
A ceramic plaque dated 1990 commemorates the centenary of the railway's opening. You can see some original Henderson-era signalling equipment on the station platform - one cast-iron piece bears the mark "Stand No 17".
