Madrid Chamartín railway station

The Estación de Madrid-Chamartín Clara Campoamor[2] or Madrid Chamartín is the second major railway station in Madrid, Spain. Located on the northern side of the city, it was built between 1970 and 1975, but more work was carried on into the early 1980s. It then superseded Atocha station, which is located just south of the city centre.

Metro StationEdit

The Chamartín metro station connects Lines 1 and 10, and is located directly below the railway station, accessible by a short sheltered outdoor passage.[3][4] It has four levels: two mezzanines, and two track levels, with mezzanines between track levels. The upper mezzanine has a few shops and fare gates to enter the station proper, and is connected to the exit. The lower mezzanine currently serves as a way for riders to change direction on either line.
