5.3.4 La Calahorra-Ferreira – Cerro de Alquife

Text by Antonio Aguilera and Domingo Cuéllar

Once the first few kilometres were in place, the mining companies began to consider linking their mines to the railway. One of the first to do so was the Alquife mine. It constructed a line to link the deposits situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada to the line at La Calahorra and Ferreira. This branch, which was for commercial traffic only, commenced service on 27th December 1899 and operated continuously until 1973 when the mine closed.In 1905, a new company was formed In the Alquife region, the Bairds’ Mining Company. It also intended to transport iron ore to Almería. In tough competition with Alquife mines, William Baird needed to construct his own railway to link up with the Almería -Linares line. This went to Huéneja y Dólar station and opened on 20th September 1916. Like his competitor earlier, Baird also had to construct his own pier. This new pier had a long and active life and in the middle of the 70’s was extensively modified to cause much less disturbance to the population. All activity ceased when operations closed in October 1996.
