Complementary Information:"Sometimes a railway is destined to fail. This is the case of the railway designed to link Talavera de la Reina with the rural district of Las Vegas Altas del Guadiana in Extremadura. The difficulty of the route, in which the mountainous nature of the terrain required a huge engineering effort, caused the project to be shelved before its completion. Today the La Jara Greenway runs between the Montes de Toledo hills and the Villuercas massif in the region of Extremadura"
