The Alicant (Alicante) – Denia line runs for 93 km along the northern coast of the province of Alicante and has 40 stations and halts. It is served by 13 diesel trains which operate on the regular line between Venta Lanuza and Denia and 5 trams which cover the Alicante – El Campello route, via the TRAM Metropolitano train-tram platform.
The line is split into 2 sections as it is being modernised and converted from Diesel to Electric. The Tram is the modernised electrified section of the line that runs from central Alicante Market (Alicant) to Venta Lanuza.
The FGV is the older diesel train section of the line that runs from Venta Lanuza to Denia. With a change of trains at Benidorm for passengers going further North past Benidorm.

The “Limon Express” is a train for (mainly foreign) tourists, running daily between Benidorm and Gata, and formed of a former shunting locomotive built in 1959 for the CD coupled to replica coaches reminiscent of an earlier era but actually the newest stock on the line, having been constructed during the early 1990s using completely new bodies on a motley assortment of refurbished bogie chassis. Not that this matters to the vast majority of its patrons, who enjoy the free and plentiful cava served on the return journey.
