Today it was decided to split state operator RENFE into four different companies, according to Railwaygazette.com. There will be one company responsible for passenger operations and one for freight operations. Of the other two companies, one will provide rolling stock maintenance and the other will be active as a leasing company.
The fleet of leasing company ATF will consist of 51 trainsets (19 are high speed trains), 2 Talgo sets, 37 electrics, 12 diesel locos and 1.173 wagons. This makes a part of the former Renfe fleet available to other operators as well. Which locomotive types are involved in the transfer remains unknown for now.
