Aluche is one of the few Madrid Metro stations that is elevated instead of underground, and also one of the few Madrid Metro stations with an island platform instead of side platforms. It was originally a station on the Suburbano, which later became Line 10. However when Line 10 was re-routed, Aluche became part of Line 5, where it remains today.[2]
