Renfe is preparing to launch its low-cost high-speed service between Madrid and Barcelona by Easter.
The current AVE service hurtles the 621km (386 miles) between Madrid and Barcelona in under three hours reaching a speed above 310 km/h.
The route was inaugurated in 2008 and competes with flights between the two cities but tickets cost an average of €98 each way, although cheaper deals are available to savvy travellers who book in advance.
The new budget service is designed to attract a younger generation who generally make the journey by coach.
