Default Spain rail tickets: buying online at renfe site

UK resident looking to buy rail tickets for travel in Spain via the
renfe.es web site.
It seems that you can only *reserve* tickets online via the web site.
You then have to turn up at the station, queue and pick them up!

Have I understood the process? There seems little advantage in buying
online. I may as well queue up at the station when I get to Spain.

I didn't find the queues much of a hassle there- just turn up and buy it
at the station. We did buy our AVE ticket from an agent in Seville,
rather than at the station, but that's because we were passing one at
the time.

You have it correct, at least as far as my experience was
concerned. The advantage to me was certainty of a ticket at
a busy time (Easter).

The queue wasn't terribly long - once I found the correct
one.
