Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
ETCS L2 from Madrid to Lleida, commissioned after altogether 9 years of delays... It must be said that ETCS L2 is used at speeds of up to 300 km/h on Italian lines for almost 6 years now, however, Spanish authorities said three years ago that they want to implement it only when operational stability is given, so the real test to confirm reliability comes now.

ETCS is still far from becoming the EU-wide norm on even just the main transit routes, but at least it seems to be working now both in L1 and L2. I hope I can write a bit more about this in a diary when I'm back from a short holiday (Monday or Tuesday).
