Courtesy of www.seat61.com he has posted the following.

Lets hope they can sort things quickly.


Irun - Vigo Camino de Santiago to be withdrawn...
The long-established Camino de Santiago intercity train between Bilbao/Irun and Vigo/A Coruna is to be withdrawn from 3 March 2020 due to asbestos being found in the vehicles used on this service. It's now the only remaining conventional locomotive-hauled train in Spain, all others being high-speed train, or electric or diesel multiple units, or articulated Talgo/Altaria trains. It's not clear if Renfe have any intention of replacing it with alternative stock, either immediately or even in due course.

Too many and too often!
Mark is perhaps a bit out of date on the news - or he may have got the wrong end of the stick. The last I saw was a couple of days ago when RENFE announced they were replacing the old Intercity trains with more modern Talgo rolling stock as of today.

Hi Bradypus, thanks so much for the very quick update. I have emailed Mark with the link and hopefully he will amend his site very soon.
I know many people use his site for planning their Camino.

regards

Nick

I have just received an email from seat 61, that's what you call service.
