 Casa de Campo


Line 5 now terminates single-track at Casa de Campo between the Line 10 tracks, providing perfect interchange in both directions. There is actually second track for Line 5 which has temporarily been covered by the widened platform.

Casa de Campo


Campamento is an original station of the former 'Suburbano' from Plaza de España to Carabanchel. The tunnel mouth is at the southern end of the platforms.



Empalme station lies in a cutting and was part of Line 10 until 2002.



Aluche is a 2-track elevated station with an island platform, where until 2002 Lines 5 and 10 terminated. There is small depot just south of the station.

The Cercanías station (C-5) lies underground perpendicularly to the metro station.

Marqués de Vadillo


Between Marqués de Vadillo and Pirámides, Line 5 crossed under the River Manzanares before climbing up towards the city centre.



East of Acacias station, Line 5 takes a sharp turn to reach Puerta de Toledo. This was necessary to create an interchange with Line 3, but also due to the severe gradient between the river and Puerta de Toledo.
