Author/s: Eugenio Roanes Lozano, Luis M. Laita de la Rica, Michael J. Wester, José Luis Ruiz Lozano, Carlos Roncero Clemente

After introducing the topic from an historical point of view, the authors summarize a mathematical study of the topological evolution of the Spanish gauge railway network in the 1956-2006 period that has recently been published in the journal Mathematics and Computers in Simulation. They show that the network has progressively lost flexibility over this time.

Keywords: Railway Network Analysis, Graph Theory, Computer Algebra Systems.
