Railway route to Puertollano

In spite of the need for new infrastructures to improve communications, this railway was not yet up and running. Around 1914, it was declared of public interest by the Ministry of Public Works, and it was under the financing of this ministry when the works of levelling and layout of this line began. However, this impulse given between the twenties and thirties of the last century was more a measure aimed at alleviating the first crisis in the sector, since the big companies had solved their transport problems by installing overhead cables that linked with the railway line from La Carolina to Linares, and also electricity replaced coal, so they stopped being interested in this project, which was abandoned a few years later.

There are still some sections of track, with trenches, bridges, tunnels, halts and a station at El Guindo, which are used as rural roads, and which are of great historical and tourist interest as they pass through the main mining enclaves.
