The RENFE Class 130 or S-130 (Spanish: Serie 130 de Renfe, manufacturer's designation Talgo 250) is a high speed dual gauge, dual voltage trainset consisting of eleven Talgo VII tilting coaches and two power cars. The trains are used on RENFE's Alvia services. The class have been nicknamed patitos (ducklings), due to the shape of the train nose.
Background and design
The trainsets are designed for high speed services on Iberian gauge (1,668 mm/5 ft 5 2⁄3 in) and high speed (1,435 mm/4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) lines in Spain; the vehicle can change gauge at low speed without stopping using Talgo's RD variable gauge system. The Talgo VII carriages are constructed from aluminium and incorporate a passive pendulum tilting system (Talgo Pendular System), and are sealed against pressure differences for tunnel travel, as well as incorporating underframe airconditioning, individual audio systems and video displays, rotating and reclining seats and power outlets.
Capacity in standard class coaches is 36 seated, in first class 26 seats, end coaches have lower capacity, one coach is typically used for restaurant/sales services.
Operations and services
As of January 2010 S-130 trains operated on the Gijon/Oviedo via Leon, Palencia, Valladolid to Madrid services with some trains extending to Alicante via Albacete, the Santander via Palencia and Valladolid to Madrid services, also sometimes extended to Alicante, the Madrid to Bilbao service via Valladolid and Burgos, the Madrid to San Sebastian/Irun service via Valladolid, Burgos and Vitoria, a Madrid to Alicante service., a Madrid to Huelva service and Madrid to Cadiz service.
Hybrid train S130H / S730
In order to extend high quality services to parts of Spain not then reached by the high speed rail network under construction, RENFE undertook the procurement of trains combining both electrical and conventional diesel combustion engine power The trains; for delivery in 2012 for use on Madrid to Murcia, and Madrid to Galicia were to be constructed by Talgo and Bombardier, at a cost of 78 million euro., the new trains based on the S-130 were initially coded S130H, later S730; 15 original S-130 units will be converted to the hybrid operation.
Fifteen S130 sets are to be converted, using two generator sets per train utilising MTU 12V 4000 R43L engines (1.8MW each) in trailer cars. The top speed in diesel mode is 180 km/h. Testing of the trains took place in 2011 with introduction expected into service in 2012.
250km/h+ prototype train
A gauge changing train capable of operating over 250 km/h is in development and is based on the S-130.
Uzbekistan trainset order
A version of the S130 for the railways of Uzbekistan (state company Uzbekistan Temir Yollari) was ordered in 2009 for use on a Tashkent–Samarkand high-speed rail line. Deliveries of the order of two trains began in July 2011.
