    Great news for Auckland! I was in Madrid a few months ago and saw and experienced the CAF Civia EMU on the Madrid Renfe Cercanias Network (Suburban network). In fact the picture above is a Civia for the Renfe (Spanish National Railways) Cercanias (note the “C” logo, C for Cercanias). Fantastic train from one of the world’s première rail vehicle manufacturers. As an aside, just at the end of September, Renfe opened their long awaited Madrid Barajas Airport extension and is operated by the Civia EMU. Journey time is 26min to Madrid Atocha Railway Station from the airport. It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg either. Only 2.50 Euros! MAXX should extend the Manukau link to Auckland airport. That’ll bring in significantly more ridership and business. On another note, train service ran really smoothly for yesterday’s All Blacks vs Argentina QF. Keep up the good work!
