First high-speed rail than China, once the world’s first

说起铁路,西班牙是很值得称道的。

他们是全球最早有高铁的国家,在中国之前拥有全球第一的里程数,但是现在被我们超越了,我们有38000多公里,他们4900多公里,我们是他们的将近8倍。

Alta Velocidad Española (AVE) is a service of high-speed rail in Spain operated by Renfe, the Spanish national railway company, at speeds of up to 310 km/h. Alta Velocidad Española translates to “Spanish High Speed”, but the initials are also a play on the word ave, meaning “bird”.
AVE是西班牙的高铁,由西班牙的国营铁路公司 Renfe 运营,它的时速可达每小时310千米。AVE的名字翻译过来是“西班牙高速”,而这个缩写也是个文字游戏,意思是“鸟”。
另外,马德里的主要火车站阿托查是个很出名的景点,火车站里的植物种得像热带雨林一样。
