Short video report from Spanish television about this wonderful train.
Here is a report from Day One of a trip last year.
Al Andalus Camino de Santiago Train Trip July 2013
Zaragoza – Santiago de Compostela- A Coruña
After the arrival of the group at 12:00h in the Delicias de Zaragoza station and comfortably boarding on the train, we had a cava (Spanish champagne) toast and were then taken to lunch in El Centro Comercial Puerto Venecia (outside the city) at Bal D'O Restaurant (OK food, but not recommended because of its location in a shopping mall, not worth the trip unless you have to go to Toys R Us or Ikea and I can't imagine you would visit Zaragoza for that!).
