Midday freight train to Santander with wood and steel coils.
Empty coal train to Aboño
@Taurus717 apart from the gauge there are not locos prepared for the voltage of high speed lines (25kv) and diesel is impossible to use there. Also, some politicians don´t want freight trains in the tunnel because in the rest of the high speed lines there aren´t, so they want the same. Then Spain is at the bottom of the freight transported by train of Europe...
@Taurus717 To be honest, nowadays nobody knows what is really that tunnel for. It started more than 10 years ago as a base tunnel, with freight trains and AVE trains in 1435mm gauge, that was impossible (freight trains in that gauge). So then, they change and put 1668mm gauge, but there aren't any freight locos that works with 25000v. Some days ago they decided to change again the gauge to 1435, with some track settled due to politic decisions. It is probably the most expensive infraestructure and there are still years left to be finish (with only one tunnel of the two). To sum up, when they finish (if that happens sometime) the Payares Pass must remain open for all the freight trains.
Steel coil train to Sagunto
Que pena que todas las líneas de vía estrecha tengan futuro menos las que dependen del gobierno central. Muy buena foto!
The train is composed of three Lounge Carriages of the "Transcantabrico Clásico" rebuilt from the diesel units "Apolo 2400" and four Lounge Carriages of the "Transcantábrico Gran Lujo" Pullmans Coaches from "Vascongados" built in the 1920's. This was for the presentation of turistic trains that are going to run in 2017.
