RENFE--trains blocked??

Jump to last reply

Instead of continuing my saga, which I hope will be a short one, on an existing thread, I will post it here. Tickets--including tickets with steep discounts-- are now available for dates both preceeding and following my own date of travel in January.

The train I am seeking is the morning train (one of two daily) from Madrid to Granada.

Unfortunately, this morning train on my date, 13 January, is now marked as "blocked." Other morning trains in the period--but not all-- are also noted as blocked. There are no discounts shown for the afternoon train on the same date, yet there are discounts available on days both before and after my date.

I did find this link, and a few others, in Spanish, suggesting that this is not a very unusual occurrence. My question is, will the blocked trains become "unblocked?" (I believe the link below may suggest that this is true)

I have been advised on an existing RENFE thread (title RENFE-----GRRRR) to keep monitoring the situation online. But I wonder if anyone has more information about blocked trains...

Also, has anyone here taken a long-distance bus and if so, how was the journey? Travel times of the bus and train are about the same on this route, but I can find no morning bus.....am I overlooking something?

Many thanks!
