The 1052, old 1003 from the VascoAsturiano Railway was in charge of the herbicide of all the narrow gauge lines in the north of Spain, it usually runs during the night, but that day did it during the day, and thanks to the slow speed of the train we could capture it in different points of the most incredible narrow gauge line of feve.

Here is a video of the train where you can hear the beautiful sound of the old engine:

@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.
