Just out of curiosity, is there any sort of railway in Gibraltar with a connection to RENFE?
The closest RENFE station to Gibraltar is San Roque about 8km north of the border.
There is a bus from San Roque to the central bus station of La Linea de la Concepcion, located 300m north of the border. It's a 600m walk from there through the checkpoints to the airport bus station on the other side of the border where bus services from Gibraltar terminate.
Historically, tracks were laid in the 1970s to replace the bus to La Linea in order to connect it to the RENFE network (it's one of the few 50,000+ population cities in Spain without a rail connection). These tracks run to within 2 km of the border to the northern extent of inner-city La Linea. The project was stopped for political reasons back then though and the tracks were never used. It's been proposed to reuse them in a future tram project for La Linea.
