Abstract: Since the XIX Century, Catalan cities have undergone the biggest growth in history regarding their population and urban extension. Transportation systems have contributed to such growth, making the cities more accessible, but at the same time morphologically determining the growth of the urban fabric. In order to demonstrate this, historical maps, urban plans, and socio-economic data of the 25 Catalan cities are analyzed. Obtaining a cartographic reconstruction of the undergone evolution using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), which allow us to compare different time periods. From the comparison, growth patterns are established relating cities with the railroad infrastructure, and which can be grouped together forming a theoretical model. The model proposed consists of six stages. The most representative ones show the attraction that the railroad station exerts over the city, the barrier effect caused by the railway system, as well as the projects of urban railroad systems improvement and integration.
