Euromed is a high-speed rail service which uses series 101 EMU rolling stock with bogies adapted for use on the () Iberian gauge track. Traction current is supplied by overhead lines, at either 3,000 volts direct current, or 25,000 volts alternating current at 50 Hz. In normal commercial service these trains travel at 200 km/h (120 mph) and have a top speed of 220 km/h (140 mph), although 250 km/h (160 mph) was reached during testing. The fleet of six units was built by the French multinational Alstom. In 2009 all the TGV based rolling stock was converted to standard gauge and replaced by the new RENFE Class 130.

Euromed entered commercial service on June 16, 1997, operated by RENFE, along a 523 km (325 mi) Mediterranean corridor, between the cities of Barcelona, Tarragona, Castellón de la Plana, Valencia and Alicante. As of January 2020 the Euromed service connects the city of Barcelona to the city of Valencia in 2 hours and 35 minutes and Barcelona to Alicante in 4 hours and 20 minutes.[1]
