New locomotive: TMB Class 300

This train class was produced between 1924 and 1970 (a very wide range), and was formed by several subclasses produced each to cover specific needs in the subway network of Barcelona.

One of these subclasses, the S type, was built for the Madrid subway, but finally was modified to run in the Barcelona subway network, wich had some small differences in its structure.

The real specifications for this vehicle are (taken from WEFER.COM, in spanish/catalan):
  • Units built: 38 engines + 38 cars
  • Total length: 14.3 m
  • Total weight: 31.5 t (engines), 20.36 t (cars)
  • Capacity: 18 seated, 100 standing
  • Top speed: N/A
  • Power output: N/A kW
