MARTINEZ CORRAL, Aurora María. Railway Stations from the Compañía del Norte in Spain. Intervention and Reuse. Apuntes [online]. 2013, vol.26, n.2, pp.24-37. ISSN 1657-9763.

Intervening to reuse? Intervening minimally to conserve? Does using, reusing, change the use? Different concepts, changing as societies and fashion, leading to very different solutions, and also directly affecting the degree of social perception and valuation of that listed or recognized as monument. A tour of the main stations of the Compañía de los Caminos de Hierro del Norte (Company of the Iron Ways of the North) in Spain allow analyzing these issues and gives rise to reflect on them and their concrete results to consider the findings in future interventions. This paper analyzes the type and degree of intervention in the selection made from the examination of the constructive materiality of the intervention, use, environment, and the degree of maintenance, among other factors, and the reflection on it. The effectiveness of legal protection figures and their application to specific cases is another of the issues. Comparing little intervened stations, as Medina del Campo, and some almost abandoned, as Canfranc station, with other widely tapped as Valencia station and then assess the degree of social appreciation of these monuments of industrial heritage, may allow a glimpse on the ways to follow and help establish basic guidelines as well as clear criteria for intervention.
