THE train company Renfe discovered early in the morning of October 8 that fibre cables imperative for the safe running of high-speed trains had been stolen from the network in Catalonia, which meant that a number of trains had to be cancelled.
Although the network had to be shut down for a period of time, they announced that engineers had fixed all of the problems and it re-opened at 11am.
High-speed trains between Barcelona and Madrid were affected, as were trains heading north from Barcelona to the French border, which left up to 10,000 passengers delayed with many having to take the replacement bus service between Barcelona and Tarragona.
