The Avlo train that covered the route between Madrid-Puerta de Atocha and Barcelona-Sants suffered a technical incident on Monday night that caused a three-hour break in Perafort, Tarragona.

As reported by Civil Protection of Catalonia on Twitter, an incident that affects the electrification system of the high-speed line has caused the Avlo train to stop at 10:30 p.m. at the height of the town of Alcover. For this reason, the company has chartered two other trains to transfer passengers to their destination.

The train, which left at 8:00 p.m. two hours late, should have arrived in Barcelona at 8:40 p.m., as reported by Renfe on its website.

The train, which should have arrived at 8:40 p.m., arrived in Barcelona at 3:00 a.m.: seven hours after leaving Madrid

Around 2:15 a.m., and after several hours stranded, the Avlo passengers were transferred in parallel to another convoy, as detailed by Renfe on its social networks.

Some users on social networks report having arrived in Barcelona at 3:00 a.m. after leaving the capital at 8:00 p.m., almost seven hours later.

In addition, they say they have seen a small explosion through the window followed by a flame, which presumably was a high-tension cable hanging above the car.

On Sunday night, a train from the Ouigo company experienced a similar episode, when one of its trains suffered a technical breakdown and left its passengers stranded for more than three hours.
