ABSTRACT
The Spanish railway network has two different track gauges, two electrification systems, and four families of signaling systems--and the rolling stock includes hybrid trains. The new, extended package presented here finds the timings and best route for any piece of rolling stock and computes its consumption, emissions, and exploitation costs.
