Prototype History:
The AVE Class 102 or Serie 102 (nicknamed "Pato" in Spanish, because of its nose that looks like the beak of a duck, "pato" in Spanish) is a high-speed train used for the AVE (Alta Velocidad Española, Spanish High Speed) service and operated in Spain by the state-run railway company RENFE. Outside AVE service, Talgo markets this train as Talgo 350.

The AVE Serie 102 was constructed by Talgo with Adtranz (later Bombardier Transportation) providing the power car technology. The trainsets can consist of up to 12 Talgo series VII coaches. It was certified for a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph). This top speed was supposed to be enough to fulfill the tender condition of a two-and-a-half-hour travel time between Madrid and Barcelona.

RENFE's original order was for 16 units, delivery of which began in 2003. A follow-up order for 30 similar trains was delivered in 2009-2010 and designated as Serie 112.

Road Name History:
Renfe Operadora (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈreɱfe opeɾaˈðoɾa]) is the state-owned company which operates freight and passenger trains on the 1,668 mm (5 ft 5 21⁄32 in) Iberian gauge, the 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) standard gauge and the 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 3⁄8 in) metre gauge networks of the Spanish national railway infrastructure company ADIF (Administrador de Infraestructuras Ferroviarias—Railway Infrastructure Administration).

The name "Renfe" is derived from that of the former Spanish National Railway Network, RENFE (acronym of Red Nacional de los Ferrocarriles Españoles—National Network of Spanish Railways) created on 24 January 1941 with the nationalisation of Spain's railways. As per EU Directive 91/440, RENFE was divided into Renfe-Operadora (operations) and ADIF (infrastructure) on 1 January 2005.
