Background: The authorities of Jaen and the press reporters attend the inauguration of the electrified line Raeza-Cordoba which is 126 Kms long with a gradient of over 14 x 1000, which speaks of the importance of this work.
One of the power converting stations is opened in Jabalquinta. All these stations are connected one with the other and fed by a 3-phase line. This improvement results in an economy of locomotive inasmuch as only one is capable of driving the train from Baeza to Cordova with a more regular time schedule and a steadier progress.
The authorities of Cordoba boarded the train in Villa del Rio, first town of their province through which this like passes.
The effects of the recent floods and of the freshet of the rivers can be appreciated from the train-windows, particularly in such towns as Montoro and Pedro Abad. Farmsteads and cattle were isolated until communications were reestablished. After crossing the bridge of Alcolca, the train arrives Cordoba.
Before the end of the year, the line between Cordoba and Alcazar de San Juan - almost 300 kms - will be completely electrified.
Cordoba - round which hover the waters of the Guadalquivir in its recent freshet - will greatly benefit of this significant railway improvement.
